          Just bought one - arrives next week. From what i can tell it's should be the fastest mac for lightroom. Processor speed is most vital. Doesn't really use all the mac pro multiple cores as I understand 4 is plenty (correct me pls?) and 16Gb ram should hopefully do it. Getting a raid thunderbolt 2 drive for image storage which will daisy chain with my eizo monitor. Choose 3tb internal fusion as I understand full SSD doesn't really help too much. 2GB graphics plenty unless you're doing video maybe?.

           

          Only issue is I have a series of archive 3TB firewire 800 drives which are daisy chained. the questions is how will these work with an adapter but this remains to be seen....
