I have an iMac late 2009, 2,8 GHz and i wonder why Windows 8 is not supported by Apple. After only 3 years no support by Apple.

A Mac Pro from 2009 get support, why?

 

Thank you Apple, this was my last computer bought from you.


iMac, Other OS

    2013 - 2009 = 4.

    At this time i need no new computer. The iMac is fast enough.

    And i have installed Windows 8. And it works good.

    The only thing i miss are the gestures and i hoped i get it with a boot camp update.

    The iMac has cost much money, and for so much money i demand a better support.

    I've bought the computer 2010, but the model is late 2009, so for me it is only three years old.

    Look at this thread for trackpad drivers under Windows.

    Hi toledo,

    I have the same problem. Spoke to Apple support, no solution, they suggested I go and buy a copy of Windows 7. I think this is totally unnacceptable and unresponsible. Apple claim to be environmentally responsible and they dont support a 3 1/2 year old computer (that was not cheap). I know I will not be replacing it with another Mac!!

    What a JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you had read the post you would see that toledo has Windows 8 running on his machine. But it makes more sense, and costs less money to run Windows on a Windows machine.

    Read projectRelentless thread here:

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4897066

     

    on how to install Windows 8 on non supported Macs.

     

    BTW the Tackpad ++ drivers referenced Csound1 DO NOT work on the Magic Trackpad as Vladimir is concentracting on the MacBook Macbook Pro trackpads only for now.

     

    There are some workarounds for the Madic Trackpad but they pale in comparison to Trackpad++

    Mac is only for people with extra cash.  Back in the old time when IBM and HP computers were the best out there.  Only small percentage of rich people I knew with extra cash or load of it, they went to Apple store and just shopped without looking at the price tags. These same people today are Apple fans so Apple don't give a F if few poor students of Windows complain about pricing. It's not for them to walk into a golf course community.
