  • macOS Mojave drops support for older macs. I have two iMacs that will be affected (a late 2009 and a mid-2011) and I bristle at being forced to retire perfectly functional machines. Of course, I can continue to use them on High Sierra for some time, but there will be limits we face as High Sierra support fades into the sunset. I would like to see a good discussion of our options and the impact of being abandoned by Apple. How long until we can no longer trust using High Sierra?




  • 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!!!
