Most of my work is pro level Photoshop Photo imaging (large files/many layers) For this task a good iMac can now do the job. But I also run multiple apps relevant to imaging (+ streaming Pandora to stay awake). The rest of my workflow is 3D modeling/rendering 3-4K (high res) still images, rarely animation. For many of these tasks MP is the way to go. Apple seems to never offer MP with the fastest processors, so I it seems I have to choose between a fast single processor or slower MP's. I can be optimized for Photoshop OR 3D -but not both. I can't see the iMac being the Machine to run these power apps -esp 3D. (And I will never use a monitor w/out anti glare) I've been doing this work for over 20 yrs & don't want to switch platforms. (also can't believe they've abandoned 30" non glare cinema!) C'mon Apple -support your power graphics users -you built the brand on us. Advice from the forum appreciated -Most interested in Mac PRo future offerings/configurations.
