Hello, I am compiling massive multi-gigabyte codebases for work and I would need a new workstation to speed things up. What would you say is the best work Mac this year? The current MacBook Pro I have is quite old (2008 Core 2 Duo!) and while filled with RAM, a 1TB Samsung SSD and an OptiBay it's probably time to retire it. My guess is that the latest blade flash drives are massively faster than the SATA-1 I'm using and the faster CPUs will certainly help too. I don't care about the GPU except if it would future-proof the machine. A laptop is preferable but I work from the office mostly (75% of the time) so a desktop would also do (and I use the old laptop while away). I believe compilations are not multithreaded so in theory a fast dual core is still acceptable. What I do want is the fastest IO possible. So I believe this means I have to buy the 512GB or 1TB SSD option as the 256GB seems to be slower. What bothers me about the current 15" MBPs is that while they do have the latest IO blades, they are still using an old CPU. The iMac seems to have the fastest CPU. Does it also have the same disk speed as the MBPs? Does the 21" iMac have the same fast flash drive as the 27" iMac? Does the 21" iMac throttle the CPU more due to different temperature constraints? So, what would you guys suggest?
