Sorry to start another chain on this. Essentially, I'm looking to buy a nMP, primarily for use with Adobe CC suite, Ocasional Rhino for Mac and mild gaming via bootcamp so I can make the most of both those graphics cards. I not hugely rushed, but need to purchase before June due to the looming end of the student discount I can get, mainly for the saving on Apple care. I have an Apple 27'' Led that im happy with. And with the reports of troubled gaming on the Retina iMac coupled with the being throttled when over heating and a fear of the fogging on imac screens. (Work iMac did this in second year) I'm set on going Mac pro, and settling down with a machine I can, over time, upgrade and hope to get 5+ years out of. My actual question is. Do I continue to twiddle my thumbs waiting for a 2015 nMP. Likely to be a base model, possibly with updated SSD and even more possibly updated graphics cards. Or: Do I bite the bullet and get a referb 6core nMP with d500s and 500 SSD. Just want to know wether a theoretical base model would have any tech that would help stretch the macs life span. Or are we still too far from big jumps in tech like skylake and thunderbolt 3 that an early 2015 release would be a negligible step? Will DDR4 and the new AMD chips that'll likely make their way in to the nMP make sitting on my itchy wallet a bit longer, worth it?
