I want to upgrade from my Mac Mini (late) 2012 refurb. I might be getting some extra money soon, somewhere in the realm of around $500, and if I can sell this Mini for a decent price, I could scrounge up, maybe, a total of around $1,000.
So I’ll probably be looking at second-hand. I’d really like an iMac as I’m sick of using my 46" TV with the Mini and want a real screen for a change. I’d like something more responsive than the Mini. I don’t use it for much other than writing and internet, but I’m really finding it to be slow these days. Waiting for the Finder to sort, waiting for save menus to pop up (like, seriously, sometimes it takes about a minute), etc. and not being able to run more than a few programs at a time is becoming a pain.
So what would you recommend I start looking for? I’ve been out of the loop and not paid any real attention to the market for several years so have no idea what’s around and what I could even attempt to bargain for at that price.
