Should I buy a new iMac?

I currently have an iMac that I bought in February ' 08. It has 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I'm on OS 10.6.8.  I upgraded the memory a few years ago.  Things seem to become a little slow on this subject. We may need the latest version of numbers that supposedly requires OS X 10.10.4.  Should I buy a new iMac, or are there things I can do to improve and accelerate and hold remote buying a year or two?  If I buy an iMac, should I buy a new airport because my current one is almost as old as the Mac?

Thank you

The airport should be fine, unless you have the intention to improve your Internet connection at Gigabit speeds... WiFi has not changed that much.

It's probably a good idea to consider a new Mac in the near future, however. This one is about the end of his life.

    You can put 2 x 4 GB DIMMS in the empty slots, this will give you a total of 12 GB. iMacs are very sensitive to the RAM, it is best to buy RAM from reliable sources like Crucial (direct purchase) or OWC OWC RAM

  • 15 - e028us: should I buy a new battery?

    Long story short, the port of loading to my laptop was fried for about 3 months now. I bought a replacement part and will try to fix it myself (if all goes well, it will not explode lol)... anyway, the battery was at 1% last I remember. I read online that store the battery is bad. Something will happen if I used this battery? Should I buy a new one? It's a generic brand... I can't afford to buy a HP battery (charge tuition and whatnot) currently

    Thanks in advance

    I bought it here and its about a year:

    Don't just assume a problem until it arises. Ranger 3 months at discounted rate is not likely to cause a problem, especially if it's a fairly new battery (low cycle count).

  • How to go from CS2 on my old iMac when I buy my new iMac?

    How to go from CS2 on my old iMac when I buy my new iMac?

    You can use this to error: "Activation Server unavailable". CS2, Acrobat 7, Audition 3 install the CS2 as we departed CS2 from the server.

    The best option would be to get the CC for your new machine as CS2 is not compatible.

  • Buy the new iMac and need help to understand the new options

    Replacement of the motherboard of my 2009 end iMac is unaffordable, so I'm looking to buy a new one. But the 'talk' has my head swimming. I know I want a 21.5 inches and that's it. My biggest complaint to my death machine now it was slow. However, I attributed as uVerse (Internet) and not my Mac; Maybe I was wrong?

    My previous was 33. GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8 GB, DDR3, a SATA 1 TB disk. I'm an independent publisher, it's full of documents, PDF files and tons of photos but apart from that... I did not use the design software (although I want to go in this area) and pretty much could have several tabs in Safari, Facebook, Word and Adobe open at the same time... nothing too taxing.

    So what do I need? I read everything I can find and I can't yet answer that question!

    Do I need a Fusion player (and what it is anyway)?

    What is the difference between a Fusion of 1 TB drive and a 256 GB or 512 GB flash drive?

    If I get in InDesign or Quark, Photoshop, will it take more RAM so I should just go with 16 now?

    Is the standard 2.7 GHz quad-core i5 processor fast enough, or should I switch to 2.9 or even the quad of 3.1 GHz with i7 processor? (allowing it to run faster, more RAM or higher processor?)

    Any advice or the definition terms would be MOST appreciated! Thank you!

    In your situation, I would buy the 1 TB drive fusion, quad-core processor i5 2.7 GHz with 16 GB of RAM. The RAM is perhaps an exaggeration, but you cannot add it later these days so I think 16 GB is safe. You should get a noticeable performance gain compared to your current system.

    IME, most of the complaints "My Mac is slow" result of naïve users be swindled by adding the third "crapware" such as antivirus programs, "cleaners", "optimizers" and "extensions". After a report of EtreCheck for your current computer see if it is the problem.

    It is possible that adding an SSD in your current setup will give you the extra boost you are looking for, but if you use the machine to make a living, I'd be inclined to think that 7 years is old enough. Be sure to ask your accountant and covers the cost of your new machine against the tax.

    Please take the opportunity to review your backup strategy. When it's your life on the line, you must have at least two external drives for backups. Keep one off-site and on-site, and rotate each week.

  • HP Pavilion HPE h8-1205eo: should I buy a new wlan card?

I have a question before I go to things, might like wireless usb adapter work? Or do I have to buy a new card wlan? It would cost a lot less here where I live if I could buy a usb adapter... Thanks in advance.

    Good then the problem was with my wireless card, or should I say it was my fault. When I put on my new graphics card I accidentally pulled out the antennawire of my wireless network card. And now I feel very stupid but yes problem solved and all is good and working.

    If you have a new machine and you just want to install software or backups, you can do it on the Apple Store. The process can last a few minutes.

    Or you could request assistance phone Apple help once you get your machine. (It's one of your benefits as a new Mac owner.) Or ask one of the people on this forum for further assistance - without having to drive to your Apple Store with a big iMac.

    You have a backup? That you install?

  • I actually bought this on Steam until it went free. Should I buy this new one to continue to use it?

    Hi, I bought fuse via Steam some time ago. I the have not used for a while, however, and I am really delighted to hear just that Adobe had more.

    Should I buy this again? I am a member of creative cloud full of anyway, so I'm not fussed if it is part of the CC. It seems that we can pay extra once he did not notice however. Am I correct in this assumption?

    At the moment we have taken no decision on how fuse will be available, so I do not have a direct answer for you.  We will most likely incorporate part of the CC, then you will get this way. At the moment it's just free for anyone with an Adobe ID, so please enjoy the preview we would like your comments and we will not fail to make announcements during the preview ended and any change in price.

    If you buy LPX now, and Apple should release LP11, you will probably have to buy it again (like us all).
