Before after that, it was a first gen Core Duo MacBook Pro which I used for 7 years, My server in the premises. 2006. My current laptop is an early 2013 rMacBook Pro, no need to change that either. Macs do tend to run for ages. Mac application on that. My second oldest Mac is a Mac Pro, amidst the first with a Intel processor. Plenty of memory and four internal harddrives makes it fast enough for advanced multitrack work. Runs the newest music software without any problems, it can’t be upgraded to the latest OS. On top of this, mac almost everyday, mostly for music production, and it still works flawlessly! Mac SE30 for nostalgic reasons. Of course, without even an ethernet port And so it’s a rather isolated piece of hardware, it’s still working.
So here is a question. Apple LC -19902002, iMAC20012006 Powermac G520062010 Macbook 20072012 Mac mini 2011-?
Macbook pro 2012on it now i will say 7 years so Apple distortion zone and have to have another!!
Ipad 2 2011-? Macbook blackish everyday as media center, some browsing, and sometimes a little photoshopping I only had to replace the battery, and the screen but stills works as the first day. The input I use for my ‘XM PCR’ and the output goes to my Logitec speaker system.
Mac that is working perfectly.
The fact that it contains an internal Superdrive keeps me from updating to a more current machine.
While something else that ain’t available on current iMacs, Another capability I require is separate audio inputs and outputs. Doing my job in Xcode and battery is still holding nice. Also, just bought a second hand 2011 macbook air 11 inch laptop and works pretty good. Oftentimes how oftendo you upgrade your devices? OS but the poser continues. The battery has also been replaced and has 118 cycles. It has started to freeze while connected to my 27″ Cinema Display while online but never when shooting tethered so there is a significant problem. MacBook Pro Late 2008 as my main computer and I’ve upgraded both SSD and RAM. My MacBook Air is a 2011 model and is still great! It’s slow at times but still does everything I need including Adobe Creative Suite.
Would like to add a SSD to get a little more life out of it. Still using my 2009 MBP that I upgraded to 8GB of RAM. IOS 5 on iPad 3 and 10 dot 5 Mavericks. Then again, in 2012 i invested in a Mac pro 5k as long as you just don’t really need to replace Apple stuff, with that said, this computer will see me though 10 years thats value compared to other cheaper units.
Therefore, my first iMac was brought in 2007 my children use it today its still going strong. Mac book pro in 2009 for use on presentations, i still use that today and its doing fine. Oftentimes the c2d is now showing its age, still running a ‘mid2010’ MacBook Pro, maxed RAM and threw a SSD in which extended its useful life considerably. This is by law.
In Norway a product like a computer must last at least 5 years.
Still using my 2012 15 inch Retina MacBook Pro, should be four years old in June.
It still runs like new without signs of slowing down or any other problems, the longest I’ve ever kept a Mac. Usually, it’s slower compared to my 2015 Macbook Pro but still works like a charm. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… Still running on original hardware and get a solid 5 hours battery backup. On top of that, using the 2009 Macbook Pro without a poser.
Intel Mac Pro that I still use and dont expect to have to replace anytime soon. New Drives and suchlike when I rebuilt been working well, SSD OS drive could be next to keep it running. I had quite identical machine. Still fighting with occasional freezes and distorted graphics after sleep though. My 1st macbook bought in 2006 and I had it until 2012 -it still worked just didn’t have much memory and was slow loading the busy web pages. Our son still uses my old 20″ iMac, as well.
The NEW iMac in our home, is the 27″ one that going to be 5 YEARS OLD, next month.
And that’s all.
The only upgrades I have made through the years, is increasing RAM capacity, and changing to SSDs. SSD. Heck, my 1985 Mac was used for basic word processing, at my mother’s house, until 1012″ years ago. Normally, a solitary reason I just got a loaded MBA is that a ’15inch’ MBP is a lot to lug around. My oldest iMac still in use is 10 years old. MB and a MBP from ’06 that still work aok and are easily serviceable with the right tools, they’re both maxed out with RAM and hold SATA SSDs. Just think for a moment. Other than that, the MBP works quickly. My 2012 Mac Mini is still going strong and I hope I don’t need to replace it for another few years at least.
