The 2012 iMac in 2023: PROJECT MAD MAC

iMac,Mac

Turned this slug bug into a media production and content creation powerhouse..Okay not really but kinda. But here’s the spill, 2.7 i5 Intel Processor, upgrading to a Samsung SSD, and maxing out the ram has this thing running like Apples current baseline MacBook Air.

I currently use it primarily for streaming (Which im very new to, but im nota rookie in CoD)
Yes it does lack the graphics performance that most current computers have, but this can be a fun experiment if you’re interested in upgrading the original Nvida GPU to a better one.. You can also run an eGPU with a desired monitor of your choice, as long as the eGPU has enough power.

Overall, Intel Macs are very under-appreciated these days due to Apple streamlining its products, forcing its customers to upgrade or go directly to Apple for service and repairs, This also hurts the 3rd party economy, even authorized service providers.. As a former retail repair tech, It hurts to see the direction Apple is going in, taking away more convenience. Nearly every Silicon based Mac can be rendered useless with at home or 3rd party repair, due to Apple coding chips on every piece of hardware so that its tied in with the information on board. A skilled tech with the correct equipment can definitely achieve this, but for the average at home computer junkie with an Amazon tool kit, won’t have much luck and will most likely resort to buying a bottlenecked Mac, or turning to Windows for the convenience.

I think that everyone should own at least 2-3 Intel-based Apple computers, because they can be pushed beyond their limit, and they’re overall great computers that deserve to live as long as possible. Especially in the current moment, used Intel Macs are pretty cheap, even higher end models. Specific models with graphics cards have been known to be useful for gaming, and more so video editing and production.

If you pay attention to the way Apple markets products, you will see that they slowly pull the greatest features away from the best machines until they eliminate and replace it entirely.

I plan to replace the broken LCD and upgrade from 1tb to 8tb, increase the RAM to 64gb, and run an RTX 4090 (maybe) as an eGPU. At this point, I will definitely be utilizing this for gaming. Stay tuned !
