    I have seen these for sale $70.00 NZD which would equate to about £30.00

    20” Core 2 Duo iMac’s – I’ll have to check the exact model but most likely the Mid-2007. These can only run El Capitan so may not be of use to the Apple enthusiast.
    2.66 Core 2 Duo 4GB Ram 320GB Hard Drive Geforce 9400

    Would this be any good these days or would it be to slow as I don't know whether you can upgrade to run an up to date OS or would it not run say latest browsers?

    I wouldn't buy one for internet use. El Capitan security patches are set to cease within the year.

    I've got one in the corner gathering dust, too slow...
