So, today I’m working on a brand new iMac - the first time I’ve bought a new Mac in over half a decade. And that last couple of years where I was eking out what I could from the old Mac Mini has been a false economy. My productivity has shot up.

I hadn’t realised how much time I spent waiting for apps to open, or hanging around waiting for them to process something.

It really was a false economy. I should have made this investment a couple of years ago, and I need to budget for doing so in future.
