Switched to 2017 iMac 5K as Primary Machine: Details on Gear I’m Using

Recently I bought a 2017 iMac 5K for solid reasons.

I have now switched to it as my primary workhorse machine. The 2013 Mac Pro 3.3 GHz 8 core is for sale, along with the NEC PA322W and one OWC Thunderbay 4 (5TB drives optional).

Switching was uneventful, which is all one can hope for when changing computers:

The 2017 iMac 5K flies—you can run all the tests you like, but it rocks for what I do.

I am looking forward to using this setup in my Mercedes Sprinter photography adventure van very soon,with 3 hot cameras to work with.

If the new iMac Pro is faster (cannot assume), I will probably go with it instead (and return the 2017 iMac 5K, for the iMac Pro has 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports on two Thunderbolt 3 busses, 3X faster GPU (claimed), and 8 CPU cores.
