Leader!

(It is considered poor taste to request a Leader.)



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

A company LEADER!

I have the previous model, which I got this past spring, and I LOVE it! I use it almost all the time, while our 27" iMac just sits there... OK... the daughter unit and the wife unit use that one.

R !

I have the original 2012 model, and it's great (when it works, fourth MOBO should be stable)!

I've been adding to my home office for it over the years - it's now nicer than my one at work.

Added an OWC thunderbolt dock from a garage sale, added a mono price 27" iPS display (from a fire sale via eBay) and added a 23 inch 1080P monitor (scrounged from an old Dell) hooked up via hdmi.

Three monitor setup - works great. Cost me under $700 total.

(I have a full keyboard, Ethernet via powerline LAN, and my home backup drive hardwired to the TB hub).

Enjoy!

PS now you have no excuse to work at home when your boss texts you...
