I'm gearing up to make some short films and maybe even a cheap feature in the coming year. As part of that I need the ability to edit. My computer gear has been Apple for close to 20 years now. I started editing on FCP 4.0 back in the day. Currently, FCP has been discontinued and replaced with FCPX. I have a late 2009 27" top of the line (at the time) iMac, but it's starting to feel its age. Therefore I am looking to get a 27" SSD-centered iMac for editing on FCPX. While there's a rough consensus that FCPX is ready for prime time (unlike a few years ago), it seems the hardware side of editing on Apple gear has been lagging. I don't want to buy a laptop, I like the more powerful desktop solutions. But at this point both MacPro and the iMac are long in the tooth. I know that Tim C. assured everyone that the iMac is not dead, but it's hard to maintain optimism when there is no longer even a dedicated team working on MacOS and desktop hardware is not getting updated in an eternity and a day. It feels like for Apple it's all about iOS and mobile. I'm starting to think that maybe it's time to get off the Apple train. I like the idea of FCPX a great deal, but I don't like the idea that it may fall by the wayside suddenly and without warning like so many Apple pro apps (Aperture, FCP etc.) and maybe even the hardware will get abandoned. So does anyone have any feeling as to when the iMac might get updated? Intel's Kaby Lake is supposed to come out early 2017, but then the real game changer is supposed to be Cannonlake just a bit later in 2017. It seems that if Apple is going to do a major re-design of the iMac, they'd wait for Cannonlake - or is that wrong? In any case, I can't wait forever and I don't want to pay top $ for really old hardware as Apple has been in the habit of offering. Therefore the timing might push me out of the Apple ecosystem after all these years, which would be a shame, as I invested so much in it (not just $, but crucially time and whatever knowledge I managed to gather). That's why I'm asking for what your honest opinion is about the chances Apple is going to get serious about their hardware (and the iMac specifically) soon? If it's going to be in a reasonable time frame, I can hold out, but at some point, I gotta jump ship. Thoughts? TIA!
