I was amazed by the new Mac Pro announcement, this is a machine I have been waiting for several years. Finally an upgradable Mac, with a very pro architecture inside.
However, of course the price is really high. So when I decide to upgrade my old 2013 iMac I want to factor in other aspects. And NO I will never go hackintosh simply because I built PCs my entire life and I never ever again want to do trouble shooting of any kind. I want to be able to focus 100% on creative work.
One of my main needs is lots of RAM, since I want to be able to host my entire epic orchestral template in there without using a slave machine. I also want at least 8 cores so I don’t have to freeze tracks or bounce all the time. And I want Thunderbolt 3 for external ultra fast SSDs.
What would you choose: New Mac Pro, iMac Pro or Mac Mini…and why?
