Fighting back my desire to participate in the Apple upgrade cycle

Posted By on October 31, 2018

It is a favorite time of year for those who enjoy seeing the new product coming online from Apple. iPhones in September,new iPads and Apple Air notebooks this week and even a new Apple Mac Mini (used an older Mini for my desktop next to a Windows machine for years).

This year it seems even more pressing since I’m struggling with either overheating or a bad power supply on my 6 year old iMac … and am very tempted to update (had a painful crash earlier this year). BUT really just getting my iMac back working correctly will suit my needs. So instead of something new, I’ll be trying to fix something a little older (the iMac) and have ordered both a new power supply and some thermal grease/paste to reseat the processors. It will not be an easy fix.
