The above linked article is a perfect case in point. The author of the post is a writer and makes due with a rather “ancient” iMac G4. (A client of mine actually donated one of these to me a few weeks ago. She told me to clean it up and pass it off to a local homeless shelter.) That’s why I think that if an average home user buys one of Apple’s brand new desktops, it really should last at least five or six years.
