Choosing an iMac 2.7ghz or 3.1 ghz

  gav30017117 20:13 08 Apr 2018

Hi everyone,

I’m looking at purchasing an iMac. Looking at 2 different 2011 models. The first one is the 2.7ghz i5 12gb RAM with 512mb graphics card. The second is the 3.1ghz i5 16gb RAM with the 1gb graphics card. I’m not a massive gamer but looking at installing an SSD at some point. Is there a massive difference between the two? The first one is £380 and the second is £460, are these reasonable prices? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Remember, these machines are reaching the end of their life cycle.

So would you say it is inadvisable to buy one, or are they still good for a few years?

You will need to do your own research but Apple withdraw OS support in much the same way as Microsoft
