I have a tough choice at work...I was really hoping MacPro would be refreshed this year. I have a 6,1 that puked. All fine and dandy, Apple swapped me a base iMac Pro, no charge. Anyway, I have a 9k budget that I have to spend this year, it's the cycle I'm in. The 6,1 was due to be replaced anyway as it was off warranty and depreciated. Looking now like my options are either 14c or 18c iMac Pro...or that's it. But I also have access to purchase a mint 2012 5,1 3.46 12c, 64GB ram, PCIe SSD, GTX 1080 etc build for just under $1,300 . It's coming from a reliable source. I just need to find a pair of good 4k 99% Adobe RGB or dci-p3 displays. I also have an intern station equipped with a 2010 5,1 8c that I could put some money into this year with what I'd save not buying a iMac Pro. At work, I never dreamed I'd have to pitch the boss a 6 year old computer, if they'd even bite. What would be a good sales pitch? With all the GPU thermal issues I experienced with the 6,1, I'm not super ready to have an iMac Pro fleet under my command. Primary use is Adobe Pr and AE. Some light Resolve work on TV spots. My department is Mac based in a corporate world, so a PC is really out of the equation. I have a need now as I've hired on another editor. Just would love to see what some folks would do with the options at hand.
