iMac Pro. Turns out it’s not a trap. It’s pretty damn good.

  2. I know you're a baller, and dont fxk with peasant tech like a 5k imac, but can i ask a question? i'm considering trading in my 2017 5k imac and getting the refreshed 13"mbp. thoughts? the only reasons i'd want to hang on to the imac is for the 27" 5k display, no t2 chip, and user upgradeable RAM; but there are so many other things going against the imac. i would like to think apple is going to refresh it sometime in the next year? or less? the looks are dated, which i don't care that much about in and of itself, but if a redesign comes with upgraded I/O, that's something I'd want. It's also got the same old ass BT, not even an option for 10gig ethernet (not that I can make the most of it, but it's like a $90 upgrade on the mac mini), the vega 48 seems like an overpriced and lackluster upgrade, and they leave so much empty space on the inside, which could have been used for a secondary fan(????), which would seem like a smart idea for a computer with heat issues… desktops are going out of fashion, and mobile productivity is the present and the future. But I still do enjoy the desktop experience. I figure that with a MBP + TB3hub + egpu + external storage, I can get similar performance (if I go for the 15"), plus portability.

    As far as why i'm looking at the 13" mbp is because I can almost trade them for each other straight up (maybe a few hundred on top for upgraded RAM and SSD). Ideally I'd like the MBP 15" with the vega 20 and 32gb RAM and a larger SSD thanks to the price drops. But because of the nightmare stories I've seen relating to the keyboard and thermal throttling, it seems like a big risk to spend that much money on a laptop, especially with the rumors of a new MBP with a keyboard going back to the scissor mechanism… even if it ends up being in an even higher tier price wise. Also, the vega 20, while better than the radeon pro, is still pretty underwhelming (supposedly the vega 20 helps the MBP run cooler? Not sure how true that is).

    Should I just wait to see what Apple releases for new imacs or mbps? The problem with this is that my trade in value is going to sink fast.

    No I'm not a "power user", but if I'm going to invest this kind of money on a computer, I want it to have a little more longevity.

    To be honest, I've had a hard on for the MBP for a while, but the price to performance seems… blehhhh… plus the aforementioned throttling issues and crap keyboard (tbh i like typing on it, but i don't want to deal with having to get it repaired all the time).

    I'm so torn.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  3. People have to stop buying these at rediculous bubble prices!! Apple keeps doing it because people like you buy them.
    13k on a non-upgradable PC? I bet you can build a same spec PC seperately then make it to a Hackintosh for less than half the price!!
    Way to overpriced. Yeah back in when Steve Jobs was alive there was innovation which was kinda worth the money but NOW?
    There is no such innovation but only almost scam like prices.

  4. Only people buying this:
    -Tony Stark (for watching movies and surfing the net)
    -Jeff Bezos (For taking selfies)
    -Oprah (for a paper weight)
    -Bill Gates (for a toilet paper holder)
    -This guy (for flex and return back to apple)
