I’m thinking of buying a new iMac and am wondering if anyone has tips for what hardware I should consider–how fast a processor I need, which video card and with how much memory, etc.
I ask because I’ve been running Aperture on my fairly old MacBook. It’s started to choke on the larger files, especially since I bought a DSLR and started shooting larger RAW images. It’s come to the point where Aperture is almost unpleasant to use because it’s so slow.
I’m an amateur who does what I’d guess is average (maybe less than average) editing on stills. Little to no video editing.
Obviously the more I spend, the better it will run–I’m just trying to find that sweet spot between price and performance on an iMac.
