I am considering similar things. I was going to buy a new Mac Mini to replace this Mac which is several years old. I will just keep running the old one. It still works but won’t run the new OS. So what! I’ll just load Linux.
I may get rid of my satellite TV and some other things. I am certainly not going to be spending much money now, except for living expenses.
If you call Rush Limbaugh and tell him how great he is you may be able to get one for free
I ditched satellite 3 months ago and do not miss it one bit. Netflix has been plenty along with the few shows I watch being available online, and purchasing The Walking Dead season on ITunes. I have subscription to The Blaze and that has more content then I have time to watch or listen to even.
