A few small storms rolled through last week and one of the lightning strikes fried our imac. The apple repair store called and said it was beyond economical repair. Hopefully homeowners insurance will cover the replacement cost.
So, 2 questions.
I'm willing to spend around 1500, maybe a little more if needed. What should I look for in the specs? Just internet and some family photo editing in LR/PS. I don't know a ton about computer specs, just the basic. Most of the Imacs come with 8 GB ram, do I need 16GB?
And what do you guys do for surge protectors? I know I should of unplugged it during a storm but it would be hard to unplug it every time a small storm rolls through GA...
