Anyone using new Imac 3.2GHz Processor 1TB Storage with PC 9.1.4? Looking to upgrade old Imac running 10.7.5. for a client.

Suggestions or comments welcome.

I am running a 27" iMac with Retina Display. 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 with the 1 T storage.
OS 10.11.5 (El Capitan)
PC 9.1.4 (Build P822)

There are a few issue with the machine... I just haven't taken the time to work out any of them. Nothing major.... email is flaky. Stuff like that. For some reason... without any pattern, I won't have a cursor (therefore no mouse) at start-up sometimes. I have to re-boot... then its all good. I am not using the wireless keyboard because I use the extended keyboard.

PC seems to run fine. No major issues that I have come across that haven't already been discussed. ie: You can't click on a PC file and have it open PC. You have to open PC first. There are some legacy drawing issues. I have an older PowerBook that has PC 8 and an earlier version of PC 9 on it for those issues.

My large format printer is a brand new HP DesignJet T120.... very nice. I have had to adjust my drawing layout as my title blocks were getting clipped. Seems to always be an issue when I upgrade printers. I had to upgrade my HP DesignJet 110nr Plus because there were no drivers for OS 10.11. The only other hardware I am running is an HP OfficeJet 8600. (and an external HD).

All in All.... your client should be fine.
