What Price Performance?

I was chatting to a young Apple store engineer and he said I could upgrade my one-legged dog, late 2012 iMac with an SSD. Apparently you can even recover MacOS over the internet with these models. Well I began to get interested to the extent of thinking about forking out £320 for the SSD.

However, on further investigation it turns out that only some of the 2.7Ghz i5 late 2012 iMacs can accomodate SSDs. How do you tell? And, even if you could it takes 60 steps, according to iFixit to install one. Don’t fancy that at all.

Leave well alone I think and let it run like a dog. I’ll stick to Centos.
