We just ended up buying a refurbished Mac when Dan's iMac was stolen in the burglary that we experienced this summer. (Mine as with me, thankfully, as I was Back East meeting my granddaughter).
It took about 2 weeks to arrive, but has been more than satisfactory for Dan's purposes and is a laptop, so he can run off to do presentations with it or use it here with a larger monitor behind it.
Good as new from our perspective!
