I have the possibility of getting hold of a late 2009 27-inch iMac. It’s a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM, and currently on OS X 10.8.5.
Yes, it’s an old model, but from the little bit of research I’ve done, it looks like I can upgrade this model to High Sierra, and can install an earlier version of Audition (11.x, I think)…?
In my line of work, I predominantly produce radio ads and record VOs, and obviously the obligatory emailing and web browsing. I don’t do any intense work like video editing. I would probably upgrade the RAM at least.
Just wondering if I should grab this, or give it a miss? Would I at least get a couple of years use out of it? Anyone have any experience of this era model for audio work?
