Consult with Lloyd on your computer or photographic purchase, backup strategy, archival and storage strategy, etc.
A big thank-you to B&H Photo for sending the $7999 Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra 20-core CPU / 64-core GPU/ 128GB / 8TB SSD for review. This is exactly the configuration I would buy excepting a preference for a 4TB SSD (only to keep the cost down).
See the test notes for details on hardware configuration and software versions.
Chewing through monster 100-megapixel Fujifilm GFX100 raw files in about 8/10 second each. Handily beating-out the 28-core 2019 Mac Pro, which takes 27% longer.
