Oh.. haha.. Lets see now.... Oh yes... Just one and always one lovely one.. hehe....
Since you are living in the past...2013 still and we are living in the future 2014, we are ahead in our thinking.. hahahha
Seriously, I do not think its a matter of selling a new Mac to us.. The maintenance shop has actually lost business since he suggested not to and they do not sell new Macs. He said he has done it in the past but it can then often cause other issues... We thought Hans had a good idea so we did follow it though.., however we have decided not to.. I am saving up for a new iMac which will resolve a heap of issues... There is always my birthday
Of course you are free to make your own decisions in the end. We are offering a number of possible solution, you pick and choose an solution.
Today I got the bill of using the cloudsolution for a day. 8.57 us dollar is not bad for a day of running a 128 GB RAM system. I don't think you will like it because it is windows and linux to pick from, no mac.
Unfortunately the disk I/O was so slow 20 MB/S that it would not be faster then my own system, even with that having only 64 GB. So that pushes me towards finally using a nice SSD-cache option on my motherboard which allows to combine an SD and a harddisk to get much higher speed.
So you see, each person has it's own pick from solution.
As a final node, you might wanna look into hackintosh, which is a way to run the mac-system on PC-metal. Not something to do without some proper technocall knowlegde of mac-os.
