So its time to upgrade my 2011 iMac with a 2.7ghz i5 and 32gb of ram. When I first bought it I was only shooting part time photography and editing small amounts of files. Well 3 years later I now am in need of a much faster processor for my RAW image processing. Ive considered simply selling my mint iMac and using the cash towards a new loaded i7 iMac or simply keeping it and using it as a monitor for the new Mac Pro base model. I would do the ram upgrades myself to save money. Basically I need processing power and multitasking power, plus the ability to upgrade down the road in the future. I feel as though I have finally out grown my iMac with the 2.7 i5. Processing 500-1000 36mp images takes forever in Lightroom.
