Not sure which Mac you need, or how to configure it, plan for backup, etc? Consult with Lloyd.
Nothing beats feeling good about a $4999 iMac Pro more than seeing an 1990 receipt for an antique system like this, which in today’s dollars is probably around $10000 and about one millionth of the speed with a CRT with postage stamp size resolution.
Oh, and that $450 upcharge for 4MB of RAM (that’s megabytes, not gigabytes!) and the $700 printer too!

I found this receipt from 1990 while going through old records. Thought that you might enjoy seeing it as you are comparing the latest Macs.
MPG: what a turd! And I owned one.

If you use this Bureau of Labor Statistics website, $6,784 in March of 1990 is equivalent to $13,002 in November 2017. See: https://www.bls.gov/data/inflation_calculator.htm
MPG: the steady embezzlement of money by the government aka “inflation”. Which (inflation) is correctly defined as an expansion of the money supply usually but not always accompanied by higher prices, a fact lost on 99% of financial writers. This is the way you are taxed without taxes, a perfect scheme for stealing money.
At any rate, that makes the 1990 Mac IIcx system equivalent to a maxed-out 18-core iMac Pro in cost!
