So I may need some advice.
I’m a logic user and don’t want to move DAWs.
My current Mac is struggling at the moment so I’m thinking of getting another model. But needs to be under £1000… which is easier said than done with Apple.
My current specs are 2013 iMac i5 8gb. So as you can see I’m shocked it’s lasted this long doing full orchestral works.
I’ve been considering a 2010 Mac tower that I can upgrade the ram, ssd and memory in…
Get a 2012 i7 27” 32gig iMac.
There’s drawbacks to both… from what I can gather I’ll get more ram on the tower but won’t be able to upgrade the software past Mojave which will bottleneck the performance anyway… so I’m not sure how well this will perform… though they are usually i3 processors, they do have up to 8 cores.
The iMac option seems better taking into consideration I’ll have another 5 or so years before Apple stop updating the system but I won’t be able to expand past the 32gig of ram… but that’s also i7 and has 4 cores which should perform well.
So I have this dilemma, could any of you suggest anything or give experience to working on these sl j in can come to a conclusion.?
Thank you for your time it’s very much appreciated!
