Apple card is a pita. You can't split tender, and they're kinda stingy with the credit limits.

I have 64 GB ram in my imac and it's a tank. I'll have parallels up running windows with Planswift, and the about 12 different mac productivity/business/crm programs are up 24/7. My browsers sessions are like fractals - multiple windows with 24 tabs each. Plus it's powering an external 42" 4k monitor. I shut it off only when it needs to restart for updates, sleeps the rest of the time. Unstoppable. My macbook pro 13" has 32 GB. Can't image 64 in that little guy lol.

5k is very steep. If you buy it please share your experiences.

So I just pulled the trigger. It’s scheduled to arrive the week before Christmas.

5 grand? That's insane. What do you need that for? Apple isn't a gaming machine. And you can get tons of Windows power for way less than half.

Editing video?

Not dogging you. I love technology. Just honestly curious as to why you need or want that unit.

It has arrived. 2 PM on 21-12-2021

I’ll be a few minutes getting everything set up and installed before I can actually make any initial/valid comments.

It’s pretty fast compared to the 2015 I used or the 2011 I owned.

I'm used to multiple monitors so it’s a pretty small screen.

that was fixed Christmas Eve.
I found a 43” 4K monitor. (Dell U4320Q 43 Inch 2160p 4K UltraSharp)
It almost feels too big.


nah.

Nice. HP Z43?

I have one in landscape right of imac monitor. Might eventually mount another in portrait left of monitor. It's cheap real estate if you spend a lot of time on the computer.

One of my customers has 2 of those one above the other, he used to have 4 smaller monitors. Now just the 2 big screens and a laptop. He is a big financial guy and the screens are all divided up with different market charts.
Way too much to look at
