Changing my Mac from Pink 12'' MacBook to Pink 24'' iMac

My current Pink 12" MacBook no longer allows macOS update. Up to macOS Ventura.


MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, 2017)

I received an email a few months ago that said, "Would you like to upgrade to a new MacBook Air?"

Unless there is pink on the MacBook, I can't buy it. Anyway, "pink" is very important to me.

But come to think of it, I haven't had a chance to carry a MacBook around with me since then. And I haven't turned on my 22-inch LCD TV that I bought from Amazon in 2011 for more than a year now.

The content on TV these days is so crappy that it makes me feel bad when I watch it. Therefore, I have come to prefer to enjoy movies on the big screen exclusively on Amazon Prime Video or Hulu.

Currently, I am watching them on my iPad Air, but the screen is still too small.

Then why not just get a desktop iMac?

And the iMac color variations include pink. Color is still important. If it is your favorite color, it will definitely make you feel better!

So Pink iMac it is! I will get this after New Year's holidays.

iMac (24-inch, 2023)
  • Apple M3 chip with 8‑core CPU with 4 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores, 8‑core GPU, and 16‑core Neural Engine
  • 256GB SSD storage
  • 16GB unified memory
  • Two Thunderbolt / USB-4 ports
  • Magic Mouse
  • Magic Keyboard

The problem is how to dispose of the old 22" LCD TV. We can no longer throw it away as bulky trash. In Japan, there is a recycling law, and it costs money to dispose of it.
