What would limitations of a 2009 iMac with an SSD and 16GB RAM be? I would upgrade macOS (unoficially) via a patcher to Mojave. What will I be able to do, what will I not be able to do? I am only looking at work such as web browsing, videos, text processing, emails and such, no gaming or video editing.

I am thinking that the only limitations would be the older mother board and CPU, which is an Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06 Ghz, not very good.

Thank you!

Mojave on such an old CPU is going to be painful at best. The graphics components of the modern GUI don't play well with such old hardware. Yes it's possible to patch yourself to get a more modern OS but you don't want to. May I ask why you're looking at such an old model?
