  • Ah, but there are limits. I own the last good Mac desktop Apple made, a 2012 i7 Mac mini. I maxed out the ram as soon as I purchased it and recently added one of your 6g SSDs. The result is marvelous. For about $300, my Mac is over twice as fast I the one I purchased.

    The hitch is that my Mac mini is now five years old and Apple doesn’t make a desktop I’d take if they gave it to me. I’m doing what I can to extend its life, but OWC might want to do a video on what I can do to protect it from evils such as lightning and excessive heat. What can I add that will add life to it?




    • A 2012 Mac Pro will run circles around most of the new crap that apple makes. Grab a 2012 dual cpu MP, toss in 2 3.46 hexacore xeons, load up the ram 64gb, a nice pcie ssd, and 4 big platters for storage, NVidia gtx980 for graphics, and you have an unstoppable mac!!!




      • Imagine a sixty second commercial touting what you just described to be broadcast non-stop similar to those Wix commercials on YouTube. The bigwigs at Apple need a serious bucket of cold water thrown at them.




      • Be interesting to listen to an interview why Apple corporate bigwigs do not want to create a line of powerful modifiable computers as you describe. Even the media won’t ask such questions as if insulting I suppose

        So it goes.
