    How well will Wolfenstine 3D run on this. I’m a hardcore gamer and I am hoping to get at least 30fps with this new rig. Especially when I drop $10k. Can someone please confirm. Thanks in advance.

    Depends how important compatible office documents are to you.
    Pages is nice to look at but let’s face it. For now, big business uses M$ Office.

    Also Pages is NOT free. It’s rolled into the cost of the Mac you have bought, or the one you are about to.

    In some countries you can buy a house for $13,199.

    In some countries you barely make $13,199 in a lifetime.

    In some countries $13,199 will make a difference in between life and dead.


    ...... nice gear though.

    Why this obsession with the “fully loaded $13000 iMac Pro? The configuration most people will buy is the 10 core.

    Also: with that money you can buy a very modest car, or the best workstation available.

    If he majors in geoscience or glaciology, his success is going to depend on the length of the cores.

    I am surprised SSD storage are still high today. Just seeing the prices drift slowly less each year.
    For example, I owned a $1,200 SCSI drive that was 80 MB (Yes, Megabyte) drive in the 1980s.

    That would have been very late in the 80s! The first hard drive I sold was a 6Mb one for GBP6000 (that's US$24k now), mid-80s.

    The thing to remember with the SSD storage on the imac pro is the speed of it. It's nothing like your average discount SSD volume you can pick up...

    Not to open word files though. Although if you are opening many word files pages willl manage the memory better and allow to open many many more. If you need to open many many MANY more then consider upgrading the RAM.

    My iMac Pro 10core, 128GB RAM, 4TB SSD with Radeon Pro Vega 64 had estimated delivery moved from 5-9 January to 9-15 January. Now expected delivery is set to 29. December and got shipped earlier today :)

    Either 1988 or 1989. Yeah the speed of the SSDs are way faster than the mainstream stuff that is out there. It makes sense the price would reflect that large of an improvement.

    lol... LibreOffice has trouble just rendering text let alone doing any convincing work with. YMMV of course but every time I have tried it on any platform it basically s*cks.

    My office has a bunch of folks that do very simple correspondence and lists. When I tried to introduce StarOffice to them I was close to full on mutiny. People that don't know any better are very hard to move off their comfort zone.

    We ended up ditching our Kerio mail server and moved to Office365 across the board and the subscription on the business side is very hard to beat. Full Office Suite, Unlimited hosted e-mail, unlimited OneDrive, and more for about $15/month per head is incredibly good value.

    For an individual its still pretty good, but maybe not quite as compelling.

    Well if you connected 13 iphone X's into a parallel computer you might have something!

    I've tried Open office and Neo Office and iWork. M$ Office is the one you really need. In fact now that I'm self employed it is so important that I can get work done that I have both the Windows, (Parallels 13), and Mac versions.

    If Microsoft are sensible they will preserve this lead they have here.

    My 10-core, 128 gig, 2TB, Vega 64 was scheduled for delivery today but actually arrived two days ago. Couldn't get the GeekBench scores reported here previously, "only" managed 4948 single core and 35482 multi-core. The power plug that connects to the Mac is oddly cheap plastic. Aside from that, the machine is beautiful and brilliant.

    Since it is a new computer, maybe some indexing is going on in the background of macOS? Try to check if there are any system-processes running in the background (and close all other applications running before running geekbench).

    Will Apple sell the Space Grey; Mouse, Keyboard, & TrackPad separately ?? That'd be a must-have purchase!!

    They must do this at one point; else how would all of us that bought the iMac Pro get a hold of a new one in case we loose or break some of these items?
