Mac mini 2012 vs imac 2009

For the last few months I am seeing the "wheel of death" more often. It freezes up completely a few times a week - forcing me to do a hard restart. I regrettably have taken my Time Machine for granted and just realized I have a serious problem with the back up. It is only showing backups for the last 3 days! And, I haven't been able to get it to back up for the last 24 hours. I just called a local Apple repair place and am waiting on a call back to see about taking it in for immediate help.

I live in Dubai, so I am limited on where I can turn for help. I know I need to see what they say first, but I am thinking in the near future maybe very near that I need a new computer. Question from my husband - who is more technical than I am: Is it worth just getting a new motherboard for my current computer?
