(Sorry this thread doesn't really have any direction!) So. I took the plunge. After years of owning a decently specced (to 2015 or so) "gaming" PC I've bought not only my first desktop Mac, but also the first brand new desktop Mac I've ever owned. Around almost 10 years or so ago a white iSight iMac G5 used to be my main computer and I loved that (very used and already obsolete by the time I got it) computer to death and it ended up on eBay around the time I built a budget gaming PC circa 2011 when I was 15. I know the 2019 iMac isn't the best of the best, but I can't help but feel excited? Things I'm aware of tho - I'm aware I only picked 8GB of RAM, considering my options it was either 16GBs and deal with Fusion Drive speeds or this, and I feel like considering how used to solid state drives I am, that going with the former (in this point of time) would have been a bigger compromise, so I'm happy with my choice (for now!) I will definitely be upgrading the RAM at one point by paying a certified servicer to do it for me. my current PC has 8GBs in dual channel and that seems to be doing well enough for now. Wait you own/owned a gaming PC, don't you game?: Honestly as an aspiring creative and digital artist and cartoonist using the IT equivalent of a mountain dew robot in a 1999 korn music video has slowly and surely dragged me down and I honestly hate working in the same space and computer that I use for play, which at least I did used to until the Switch came out and I haven't really touched a big mainstream PC game since 2017? so yeah, 99.99% of the time these days, I'm actually doing creative work and the price of 4K monitors for design make my eyes bleed especially when I'd have to give up the 1MS response times on my current one I use for my switch. eGPUs also exist. Regardless, I'm sure I'll be happy with my purchase. I'll be glad to be back.
