    Hi,
    I am considering buying the i7 imac to use for audio production and I was wondering if anyone out there has one and what their impressions of this machine are.

    You don't even have to be using it for audio, even if it's just general use let us know what they're like. The reason I ask is that I've been reading that there are some issues with them and I want to know whether it's worth buying it or whether or not I should save a little more and get a mac pro.

    Yeah thanks for that! I've read some of these threads and it makes me think the new i7 imacs are a bit of a lemon.

    I was looking for people who use it for audio, specifically programs like pro tools and logic

    Edit your title to a more appropriate one.


    They will be more than fine.

    It also depends on how big of a project you're working on.
    More RAM will definitely help, and as soon as Logic and Pro Tools are optimized for Snow Leopard you will also see an increase.

    Have a look at the Digital Audio forum here and also this board: http://www.logicprohelp.com/forums.php?sid=f0e6c6dd9a0887ad1f452fa2e62d05bf

    If you're concerned about it being a lemon, get applecare. Only 169 on the iMacs.

    It's actually $268 where I'm from (Australia) which is a lot when the base i7 imac is $2889 here.

    It is considered bad form to bump your own thread (twice)

    3. if you dont know what mroogle is... go away
    4. The i7 will be great for audio production, and unless your like Dr Dre. you won't need any more power [​IMG]
