AARPCs - Old hardware/Product Longevity Discussion 19:00

• Macs vs PCs - compare a 10 year old Mac to a 10 year old PC in terms of support
○ If both are taken care of, the PC wins
• Artificial Obsolescence via end of software support
○ Android is really bad with this
○ iOS and macOS also bad when looking long term (>5 years)
• Steve has several desktop/laptop PCs over a decade old that either are supported.
○ Oldest Macbook still supported is the 2013 MBP (Correction: it's the 2012)
○ 2007 iMac went until MacOS El Capitan (released 2015, final update was July 2018)
○ P4 Dell Dimension from 2004 is still capable of running a supported OS under Linux Mint
• Linux (Where available) can extend the life of hardware
