    Most expensive Mac ever. It almost doubles the original trashcan mac price and the base spec is shit. Plus, 6k for the monitor, it's a 12k setup. I don't think most of us need to spend that, unless you do heavy video, 3D, etc.

    An iMac Pro would be your choice (6,6k for a reasonable one) and you will be good for many years (I still use my 2010 iMac).

      Or you could buy a PC more powerful than a iMac Pro for half the price with doubled up GPUs and upgradable storage and I'm talking an actual nice and professional looking PC not a gamer turd.

      You'd be mad to spend the money on an iMac Pro if you're doing video or 3D.

        Well, the problem is you will be using Windows, unless you build a Hackintosh, which increases the problems when you want to upgrade de OS. The iMac is a reliable machine, mine still works like a rock. But I understand those who do everything on Windows, it's preferences, that's all.

          I've been using Windows, Linux and MacOS for more or less 30 years, which problems are you referring to? In terms of just using Windows, that is. Obviously hackintoshes aren't really good for much anyway.

            Using Windows is not the problem. The problem is using macOS on a made up PC.

            Windows and Linux are the problem. Yes, both are stable, but...

            Windows is ugly and is constantly getting in your way. There is no consistency with it application to application. OSX just gets out of your way and lets you work.

            As for Linux, great for servers, but every version of desktop Linux I have ever used has always had problems. One place I worked where everyone was on identical hardware imaged from a single source all developed very different problems over time.

            OSX is consistent, beautiful, and gets out of your way and lets you work and, in my experience, never develops problems. It's just frustrating that the hardware is so expensive and inflexible.
