    Default Is it worth buying an old iMac or would it be the same as Windows XP

    20Ē Core 2 Duo iMacís Ė Iíll have to check the exact model but most likely the Mid-2007. These can only run El Capitan so may not be of use to the Apple enthusiast.
    2.66 Core 2 Duo 4GB Ram 320GB Hard Drive Geforce 9400

    Would this be any good these days or would it be to slow as I don't know whether you can upgrade to run an up to date OS or would it not run say latest browsers?
