    If you are happy to pay, maybe buy some hashing power

    You can't mine on a MAC. Get a PC!

    I spent all of yesterday getting mining working on my OS X devices. Its not complicated once you figure out the command line & github process. I can help you out.

    A modern iMac with 2-4GB discrete radeon chipset can indeed mine without melting down. Not able to overclock or undervolt like on a PC though, but that's not the point.

    Even so, that's why I only mentioned using older Mac towers with pcie slots.

    Would have to say the opposite. I'm sure it can mine for a few seconds just like a volvo can compete in daytona 500 for a few miles but you will never ever achieve anything on the imac. The imac is a personal office type commuter with no efficient cooling and not meant to run 24hrs a day 7 days a week. Its a plastic computer with low end components that can't handle the heat. Do the math on current draw and figure out where that goes as its converted to heat and you will see its becomes a melt box. Even if possible it would fall under the silly category.

    Well said!

    Wasn't passing judgement on the "silly" factor, simply straightening out that it could be done — without melting down. I've run gpu-intensive apps on many a Mac, including iMacs without issues at all. They're not "plastic computer[s] with low end components", as you seem biased to state, probably not having owned one.

    Nevertheless, I wouldn't do it, but that's up to the owner. At $9+/ETH anyone can make a few bucks on just about anything with a gpu these days!
