Betty LaRue Posted April 5, 2021 Share Posted April 5, 2021 I think I’m going to be getting a new iMac. All of the talk in the other thread made me look to see what year mine is. 2013!! I thought it would say 2017! I’m not idly wanting it because it’s Grey-haired now, but because it has shut down on me yesterday and again today, after working an hour. I think it’s probably dust in the innards and is getting hot, but what do I know. I don’t know come ‘ere from sic ‘em when it comes to computer innards. I’ve been sussing out new machines so first I’ll need to sell a kidney. No, I won’t have a PC. Period. will 2 TB hard drive be enough? I'll go with 32 GB memory i9 processor graphic card, do I get Radeon Pro 5300 4GB or 5500 XT 8GB GDDR6?? I don’t understand much about graphic cards other than I know the best are good for gaming machines. All the talk about adding memory...one machine comes with 16GB in 2x8s, so I don’t know whether to get that and have my son-in-law add two more 8s or just get 32GB outright. He has no experience with Macs but is very good with technology as a whole. He build and flies drones from tiny ones to bigger. Whatever, to get a beefed-up one means ordering and waiting. I think if I can manage to work 30 minutes at a time getting everything copied to hard drives, I’ll take this one in for a cleaning. Advice welcome.
