Hey all,

I'm buying a new computer and thinking about the iMac. iMacs have a Radeon HD 6750M GPU. Is this good for mining? Thanks.

No, its not a great mining computer. It will still outdo nVidia cards and CPU mining, but you might be better off with a Mac Pro or getting a used iMac and using the money you saved to make a dedicated mining rig.

I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2011 Model that has a Radeon 6750M, It pulls about 65-70MH/s depending on if im using it at the time.

Don't plan on having it pay for itself by mining, but it doesn't hurt. Especially when I'm sitting at starbucks for a few hours at a time.  Wink
