2013 Mac Pro: Which one to Choose, How to Store Image Files, Backup, etc

Deciding which Mac Pro variant is best for a particular workflow is not obvious—it’s easy to overspend on a system that might actually run slower than a less expensive one. Spending $2K more for a slower system is not an appealing thought. And in some cases an alternative might be preferred.

Overspending is not the only risk; choosing the wrong system can mean having to buy the right system later and that’s a really expensive mistake. A trip to the Apple Store slants the odds against you by the glitz and pressure to decide, just as walking into a car dealership uninformed can be a costly experience (read this).

Just yesterday I walked a photographer through the choice of systems, this client having almost turned away from the 2013 Mac Pro thinking it had to cost $10K. As it turned out, the ideal system was half that cost for her needs, and will run her workflow faster than the more expensive choices.

What actually matters for performance?

As a photographer, I must answer that question for myself based on real results, not benchmarks or tests run in unrealistic scenarios. My review coverage reflects that reality.

Moreover, a professional needs a computing system that takes into account current and future needs, reliability, backup and expansion.

The wrong choices can mean spending more money for less performance, inadequate storage capacity, confusing backup, or workflow configuration that does not utilize the best approach.

For all these considerations, personalized consulting can save time and money and prevent making choices that can cost you later. Also available for updating and expanding existing systems, photography systems, etc.
