First of all check that link, because it gave me a 404 error.
I found his video's on these matters and I think he made valid points. If I were to summarize all his info in a few short sentences, it would look like this:
- MAC users prefer remaining MAC users if the technology keeps up. (Same goes for PC users BTW).
- There is a lot of doubt about the future of MAC Pro. If there is a new version with the latest technology (Ivy Bridge), great. If not,...
- There will be a lot of migrants to the PC platform, because of the better choices one has to configure a system, but potentially with more compatibility choices.
- The implicit assumption is that potential migrants are about as computer savvy as MAC users, and only know how to attach a power cord. In a MAC world that was about all that was required, but that does not apply to the PC world, hence his comparison with the HP Z800 is not really valid.
- His remarks about the cost and performance of Thunderbolt components are very real.
- MBP and iMAC are not feasible substitutes for a MAC Pro.
Interesting to see and his views reflect my perception as indicated in a recent post I made (Adobe Forums: Ten Commandments for Editors).
Thanks, Harm. I had some extra characters at the end of my link. I fixed it.
