Dave Farrington wants an iMac Pro.
Yes, adjusting for inflation, and what I hope is a similar increase in buying power, an entry-level iMac Pro is a bargain. But it’s still a hair under $5,000. And as much as I lust over the power inside and that cool Space Gray finish and all those ports
But it’s less expensive– in 2018 dollars– than an original Mac at $2,495.
That much power is more power than I could possibly use. Even my iMac– with that creaky old Fusion Drive– seldom peaks anywhere the CPU or RAM on iStatistica or Activity Monitor. An iMac Pro on my home desktop would never be challenged, but in five years or so, may not be upgradeable to macOS Bakersfield or macOS Half Moon Bay or whatever else Apple comes up with.
I have a similar fear.
