  1. Hi There


    Would really value your opinion I am freelance 3d Exhibtions designer, 25 years + Mac user all this time, not that tech savvy. Having to upgrade my not very old (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5, 24 GB 1867 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB) - just a dud for me, glitchy with VW and not stable and biting the bullet to move on from a lost cause that that machine was.....So I am trying to decide on whether I should go for an iMac with the following Spec (see below) or an iMac Pro.... The big sticking point is the cost, its painful enough at £3,149.00 for the iMac eye watering for the £4,899.00...... but its business, is it worth the extra though long term.....


    I work in VW and Cinema 4D. Nothing I do is that Photorealistic (although I like to get as near as possible)  as speed is the key in Exhibition Design.  Also, is it really worth getting apple care these days? I have had it in the past, but after having a not great machine (bought form a retailer iStore) not direct from Apple, advice on that would be great too. Would value any advice before I raid the piggy bank. Thanks Vic 

    Imac spec; 


    4.2GHz quad-core 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz

    Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB video memory

    32GB 2400MHz DDR4

    512GB SSD


    Or the base I Mac Pro
