I know some people here may not think so but I think I got a steal of deal I picked up a 2,1 dual CPU xeon 3 ghz with 3- 1tb hard drives working fine for $25!
This is literally the last oldest model you can get away with to have OS support. It's likely going to be EOL in September, so sure it works now right up until there are no more security patches for it.Still using my iMac from late 2009, so yes I'd say that still very usable.
I'm guessing this one you can technically still get it to upgrade, otherwise the last officially supported OS is now EOL. So sure it could be a play toy, but it's too old now for official support. I'm not actually sure if you can get 10.13 on this or if the installer tells you no.Still using my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53Ghz, Mid 2009) with 8GB RAM and an SSD. And yes, VERY usable!! Just throw in the SSD.
Got mine for $1, so kinda got you beat on the steal price
A Mac from 2003, that has been thrown down the stairs, run over by a truck and set on fire usually sells for $300 (weird). So, I say yes, that not just a deal, it's a true steal.I know some people here may not think so but I think I got a steal of deal I picked up a 2,1 dual CPU xeon 3 ghz with 3- 1tb hard drives working fine for $25!
