Golden age of upgrades would be true if 2012, 13 macs were easily upgradeable. The only Mac that fits the bill is the Mac Mini. the current model was released in Oct 2012. It’s very likely that when it gets a refresh in 2 months, everything will be soldered down.

Who cares how upgradeable a 2007-2009 Mac is? If those Macs can even run the OsX 10.9, they can’t run it well.

Im thinking about getting an all in one desktop soon. The Dell Inspiron 23 is serviceable and is at the top of my list. The iMac is a sealed appliance. No way!
