iMac Bit The Dust - New Mac Mini?

Hi Michael,

We have an employee who uses a basic TeamViewer license to remotely connect to a company Mac from her home Windows PC. This tends to work very well as TeamView runs a background server to allow connecting at any time.

A paid subscription is required, however. We paid $300+tax for a year's access last year.

For a free subscription you could try a VNC client to connect to macOS' built-in screen-sharing. That's worked before for me, but isn't as bullet-proof as the TeamViewer subscription.

Also, go for the M1 Mini. You won't be disappointed, especially if you migrate to the native version of Omnis 10.2 (coming soon to a download site near you...we hope!).
