A reader’s set-up

MacFor­mat read­ers share their beloved set­ups

Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

ver since he started work­ing at an ad­ver­tis­ing agency in his na­tive Turkey nine years ago, Evren Du­manoglu has been in love with Ap­ple prod­ucts. Back then his of­fice com­puter was a Power Mac G5, and it prompted him to fur­nish his home with a brand new white iBook G4. It was, in Evren’s words, the start of his Ap­ple ad­dic­tion.

To­day, his favourite piece of Ap­ple gear is his in­cred­i­ble 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K dis­play. Be­ing a graphic designer, the un­be­liev­able screen res­o­lu­tion is tai­lor-made for his work. “It has the best colours and res­o­lu­tion, good con­trast and it’s pow­er­ful”, he ex­plains. “I can do video edit­ing, 3D mod­el­ling and graphic de­sign all at the same time”.

Even so, choos­ing a favourite Ap­ple prod­uct wasn’t easy – Evren also has a soft spot for the beastly Mac Pro he once used. It fea­tured

E64GB of RAM, a 512GB Kingston SSD and two 2GB graph­ics cards, not to men­tion a 27-inch Thun­der­bolt dis­play. Need­less to say, we were all drool­ing at the prospect of such a ma­chine!

His wife Banu – a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher – is equally ob­sessed, telling us she loves the “sim­ple but cre­ative de­sign of Ap­ple”. Though they share a lot of their Ap­ple gear, Evren has pos­ses­sion of the Retina 5K iMac – lucky man!

Like much of the world, Evren and Banu (whose Ap­ple kit joins Evren’s in the photo above) have been caught up in the Ap­ple Watch ex­cite­ment, with Evren telling us he’s ea­gerly await­ing the Watch’s ar­rival. He’s also plan­ning on pur­chas­ing a new ra­zor-thin Mac­Book to add to his im­pres­sive Ap­ple col­lec­tion – although it’s so light, we reckon he may have to re­mind him­self it’s even there.

Launches like Ap­ple’s Spring For­ward event still pro­duce a huge buzz for Evren, who pro­fesses to feel­ing like an ex­cited child wait­ing for new an­nounce­ments ev­ery time one rolls into town. So what does he reckon is next in the Ap­ple pipe­line? “I think the next news will be about a Retina Thun­der­bolt screen and an Ap­ple tele­vi­sion set”, he tells us. With both ten­ta­tively pre­dicted to be just around the cor­ner by some an­a­lysts (and con­fi­dently pre­dicted by oth­ers), the next Ap­ple re­veal could get Evren very ex­cited in­deed.

The Power Mac G5 was the start of it all, the com­puter that be­gan Evren’s Ap­ple ad­dic­tion
