    Do you think it´s reasonable to get a usable and future prove Mac 7,1 if my maximum budget is 10.000 $ or Euro? I want to edit 4K on FCPX and PP and use LogicX with many huge sample libraries. For the libraries I could use external TB3 drives and I would invest another 2000$ for that. Or should I better get the IMac 2019 with 126GB of Ram or the IMac Pro?
    Will it be possible to get the RAM, the GPU and the SSDs from another source?

    How about us who have two kids at univerity ( College ) with another year or so to go ?

    How hard would it have been for Apple to also make a downgrade version nMP to the level of a BIG 5,1 upgrade ?

    . . . or. . is that already waiting in the wings if the "Monster 7,1 nMP" fails to meet sales expectations ?

    How much do you calculate for your 7,1? Or will you never get one?

    Maybe a totally pumped up 2012 5,1 for the time being, still plenty of life in them. I simply don't need that much ( 7,1 ) power.
