THE SWEET SPOT

Mac Format - - CONTACTS - BY GE­ORGE JESSEN

While we’re all think­ing about the new iPhones, Ap­ple Watch Se­ries 3 and the Ap­ple TV 4K as routes to re­duce our bank bal­ances – quite sig­nif­i­cantly in the case of the iPhone X – I’d like to step back to the pre­vi­ous Ap­ple event and the new iMac and iMac Pro in par­tic­u­lar.

My cur­rent Late 2009 iMac has served me well, but it’s time to up­grade and I need a Mac that of­fers fast video file conversion and edit­ing. And there’s the dilemma. High­end iMac or low-end iMac Pro, on the ba­sis that a fully loaded iMac Pro is likely to be eye-wa­ter­ingly ex­pen­sive.

So here’s the ques­tion: Where do you think the ‘sweet spot’ lies? What’s the best trade-off be­tween model, price and per­for­mance?

I think this would war­rant a fea­ture. Great mag­a­zine guys!
