Going buy the spec this is an 8 year old machine, so it's kinda expensive for what it is. However it is the cheapest example of this model available. Heat added.

I have no idea as not an APPLE fan but it runs the latest version of their operating system and comes with the genuine boxed mouse and keyboard. If I was thinking of trying APPLE - which I am not then for this price I think I would give it a go.

Apple doesn't support their OS on really older hardware which means you probably won't be able to upgrade some apps especially safari which could be annoying

No idea if SAFARI is supported, suppose you could contact APPLE or ITZOO tomorrow to see.

What I do know are some older silver surfers still using XP on line !!! because they like it(shock)
Told them to stop using email but they would not listen.

It would probably be the best price for the spec if it's something you want to try. It's the same model I bought my parents back in the day and they still use it on a daily basis. As with any device it depends on your usage (my dad uses for his photography and has won awards - he uses his machine to edit in Photoshop and whilst not the best example of a Photoshop machine, it's obviously plenty fast for him).

I have an Apple Mini about the same age, and it is virtually useless. Good luck with surfing the internet with the version of Safari installed. I managed to get Chrome installed on it, but it complains about security and won't load many sites.

I have an iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011) with hte latest version of Safari 13.0.4 and its fast enough , although Firefox 72 is faster

What? Apple provides support for macOS 10 - it offers support for this OS which currently spans an 18 year cycle. It's the developers that don't provide active support. On saying that it's industry standard to drop support for any OS & apps after 7 years, most if not all 8 year Macs can be upgraded to the latest macOS and are therefore supported.
In the IT world 3 year old hardware is considered obsolete

I don't know if you are trolling or not, there have been no virii discovered "in the wild" for macOS X. Proof of concept, but no active threats, not bad for an OS that debuted in 2001...

Well that's amazing compared to WINDOWS
I bought a Late 2015 iMac 27inch for £2569 and it was the best purchase I've ever made, I used it several hours a day and it has been flawless. I also got the Trackpad thing that they sell, and I use that instead of a mouse these days, it's much more comfortable and their Trackpads are SO GOOD! It was the first time I ever OSX, I switched from 20 years of Windows use because I hated 8 and 10. OSX feels like Windows 7 but without any bugs or hiccups, so much better than the horrible Windows of 8 and 10.

However I still keep my old Windows PC for VR, because Apple hates gaming.

Of course it depends on the models you choose to compare, however the Mac mini range was designed as an entry level device. The Mac mini & iMac do share the same hardware, the most significant difference is the fact that the mini doesn't have a dedicated GPU. Therefore GPU performance is dependant on the CPU that's fitted...

Did you bother reading the article you posted - there is a huge difference between virii & malware. There have been no virii on the Mac since it's debut. Also a lot of what is listed is proff of concept - it never made it out "in the wild"
Huge heat from me. People need not worry that it's an older model for this price. The experience will be great for most needs.
Great screen, thin form factor... Just a nice thing to look at compared to other desktops and even laptops for that matter.
Stick it on you desk, surf and use for normal tasks and you'll love it.
The keyboard and mouse you get are worth around £80 alone.
Still using my 2011 27" and love it (albeit with max ram and ssd installed).

Just a heads up... You can buy an adapter that will allow you to use the monitor as an external screen for another device. Only at 720p (or my does anyway) but it opens up the use pf these machines considerably. In fact, my 27" is my main tv with a fire stick plugged in.
It called Dr Bott for those interested.

Likewise - am using a 2012 iMac desktop booting off a usb ssd drive. It started going slow last year but cost <£100 to buy the ssd drive and it now runs like its brand new. Has latest operating system and all software updates work fine. Not bad for a 7 and a half year old machine!
I had this machine up till last year, sadly a freak power surge done it in , but yeah it was the nuts, currently using a imini till I get a new apple 27 iMac later this year, if worried about virus/malware I use sophos for free

Same here. My 2011 iMac is a solid running machine. Especially after I swapped out the HDD for an SSD. Plenty of power for most people unless you are a gamer or do professional video editing.
I've seen 2011's selling for £270+, so its not a bad price. In fact I recently bought a 2011, which is faster than my 3 year old one ! They were brilliantly made then.

Well, it's sold out now, so I guess a fair few people found it worthwhile purchasing.
The dirty little secret about older used Macs is that they use hard drives not SSD yet are hardly upgradeable. With most Windows laptops and desktops it's a trivial matter to upgrade to an SSD. With Macs you have to use workarounds like mentioned above, where you boot off an SSD through a port. For that you ideally need a modern Mac with a fast port offering. It also involves some tech knowledge and leaves things sticking out of the back of the Mac. So when the iMac in the family began slowing down to unusability I researched a replacement. Top criteria was that it needed to have a 2TB drive as a minimum as main usage is photo and video library. And discovered that if you need a 21" iMac the largest drive you can have is 1TB and that's a Fusion drive where only part is SSD. Since Apple applies it's price multiplier to SSDs like everything else, any SSD Mac will also cost a fortune that really distances it in price from the equivalent Windows machine. And yet still they are still selling...

On the forums when the idea of properly upgrading Mac HD to SSD is brought up, there is guaranteed to be one clever dick who tells everyone how he DIY'd the swap and is very happy. But it appears to involve unglueing the screen as step 1! There are no little back st companies that I can find that offer an HD to SSD upgrade service at menu pricing and that tells you what you ned to know about the viability of that route - they don't trust themselves not to brick your Mac!

This one is fully supported on the latest operating system Catalina - macOS 10.15.x. Whether it will be supported on the next iteration macOS 10.16.x is anyone's guess but it will still receive Safari updates and security patches for a couple of years at least.

About the same age? I am currently posting on a Mac Mini 2012 of the same age. Running Mojave 10.14.6 (prefer it to the newer Catalina) and the latest version of Safari and it runs both with aplomb. If you have the older 2011 model, then yes, you might have a point but there is a watershed in Apple support at 2012. Anything from that or later is fully supported right now.

Even if you had the 2011 Mac Mini, it should be running High Sierra (macOS 10.13.x) and that should still be receiving Safari and security updates, so I don't understand your "virtually useless" comment. macOS updates to the latest version your hardware allows are free.
I'm still using my 2011 MacBook Pro I put an SSD and a fusion drive in it I'm just saying that you won't be able to run the latest OS for long so check that your apps don't need it it a lot of Apple ones do for starters.

at some point the price of Apple hardware will start coming down again I suspect as they move more to a subscription model. I don't think I would buy a MacBook Pro at today's prices even if I could afford it!

Far better with Linux mate, faster, more secure and runs on any type of hardware you like. Uses a lot of the same commands as well.

You can run any type of distro but the likes of Elementary is very similar to MacOS but with more free software.

For those interested in a 'refurb' used Mac, I can recommend Hoxton Macs
hoxtonmacs.co.uk/

They warranty your purchase for a year, but don't appear to offer support or a repair service.
