    Default iMac

    Last night my iMac died. Turns out the graphics card has gone. Instead of paying the best part of $500 for a new graphics card, I'm getting a next gen iMac refurb for only $300 extra. Lesson out of this is to shop around or know a 'guy'. Without our I.T. guy, generally speaking, 2nd hand or retail would cost so much more.

    Can't wait to get my hands on it later this week - hopefully. For now it's back to my ****ty laptop which runs Windows. Great to have a back-up, but I absolutely loathe Windows compared to Apple now

    i didnt know that you could remove/change a graphics card on a mac. i assumed they were welded onto the logic board - strange

    Macs are very expensive, but I wouldn't want anything other. They have always been very reliable with longevity to me!

    They are fúcking great. I just picked up my new one and have it all set up. Running off my Windows laptop for 4 days was SO painful, but the wait was totally worth it! I was also quoted $720 for a refurb. Mac Book with a SSD (solid state drive). Might do that sometime in the future. That or an iPad. Not sure, but not today's problem. Just so glad to be back in Mac land!

    Refurb. is definitely the way to go to save $$$. It's not in my budget to be buying this shìt brand new. Again, helps to know a guy!
