My faithful old Mac Pro was gradually getting slower and slower and unfortunately I do not possess the kind of cash required to get my hands on one of the cylindrical new Mac Pros. I did a bit of research on the Internet and discovered that my money would be better spent on a top-end iMac rather than a low spec. Mac Pro. Although this has nothing to do with crowdfunding, I am so impressed with my new toy that I felt the need to share the love with anyone who’ll listen. So I made a video of the iMac vs Mac Pro showdown.
iMac vs Mac Pro – Comparing Apples With Apples
Oh what a hilarious pun! As you will see from the video, I didn’t want to do a bunch of benchmark tests I just wanted to see if my new computer was going to be faster than the old one. So, with the help of my YouTube savvy daughter, Lizi, I ran a couple of tests to see if there was an improvement before selling off my old Mac Pro. I wasn’t disappointed!
The main thing I use my Mac for is video editing. I’m not especially good at it, but I do enjoy it and my old silver beastie was really starting to struggle with rendering footage in Final Cut Pro X. It was also a machine that was designed during the reign of Final Cut Pro 7 and was not very capable when it came to exploiting the GPU optimised power of the latest version of FCP X.
Apologies for the sound quality. I did have a clip-on mic but I neglected to check the gain properly so we ended up using the mic of the camera. You can hear it OK, it’s just not as crisp as I would have liked.
Apologies For The Lack of Crowdfunding News Here
If ever there was a company who did not embrace the warm fuzziness of crowdfunding, it’s Apple. But please, allow me this indulgence. I am a man…… I love gadgets……
