Thoroughly TESTED: Apple iMac Pro vs 2017 iMac 5K and Others

Thank you for buying your 2017 iMac 5K and/or iMac Pro at B&H Photo, and for upgrading it at OWC Both vendors made and make my extensive tests of the Apple iMac Pro and other Macs and gear possible.

Not sure which Mac you need, or how to configure it, plan for backup, etc? Consult with Lloyd.

I’ve now posted detailed test results spanning a large number of areas including even things like power consumption.

I think any Mac user is sure to find plenty to think about in these findings on the Apple 2017 iMac Pro, and how it compares to the much less expensive 2017 iMac 5K (and to the 2013 Mac Pro and 2010 Mac Pro).

I hope it saves some people thousands of dollars, and also pleases others (if emptying their wallets) for real versus assumed gains. Thanks for subscribing, which makes work like this possible. in-depth review of Apple iMac Pro

I am reading through your magnum opus on the iMac Pro. It represents a staggering amount of testing, documentation and thought.

There is no better assessment on the internet. Excellent job.

DIGLLOYD: a ton of work with many hurdles encountered along the way.
