Upgrade or buy new?
Posted on 2004-11-25
It's more opinions I'm after here than answers!
I have a 500 mhz, 20 Gb, slot-loading indigo iMac with 192 mb of RAM, bought in 2001. It's running OS 9.1 (and 10.0.4 which really doesn't work). I want to upgrade to Panther and to 9.2. I also need to buy more memory. And I'll need the help of a Mac pro for upgrading because otherwise I'm bound to run into problems. SO... is it worth buying the new Panther software and the new memory and upgrading? Or should I just forget it and buy a new Mac? And if so, which Mac?
The apps I use are: Microsoft Office (which I guess I'll also need to upgrade), iTunes, iPhoto, Outlook Express.
