Well, I just stopped at my local Apple Store, as I’ve been in the process of finally getting a new Mac, but as I’ve been trying to decide on a new M1 Mac Mini, or an new iMac with the older Intel chips, but having to shell out extra $$$$ for the needed RAM and storage, I see that as of March 18, Apple are releasing a new Mac, Mac Studio, specifically built for doing creative work, like video creating/editing, 3-D modeling and music composition/production.
The base model starts at $2000, but that comes with 32gb unified memory through a 10-core Apple M1 MAX chip, upgradeable to 64gb. 512gb SSD upgradeable to 8tb. 4-6 Thunderbolt ports, 2 USB 3/4 ports, HDMI port, ethernet port and headphone jack.
They are also releasing their own high-end, separate monitors (if you’ve got extra cash to burn) for use with Mac Mini and Mac Studio, which itself has additional Thunderbolt and USB ports.
I glad I have been waiting this past year+ for sample library makers to update to run on the M1 chips as now I’ve got the option of this new studio-specific Mac. What do you all think?
