Peppermint 10 on a mid-2011 iMac i5 2.5 GHz
« on: September 20, 2019, 03:16:48 pm »
Found a new-to-me mid-2011 iMac i5 2.5 GHz on Craigslist for what seemed a  very modest sum.  Apple calls it vintage now, and with the impending release of the second version of MacOS that does not support it, will deem it obsolete.  I hope to keep it relevant for many years to come with Peppermint.

Personally I think it's nuts if Apple consider a sandy bridge i5 'legacy' ??? .. but hey if it means another Peppermint PC..... :)
