I guess it's a slow news day? Why would anyone post this?
Six Tenants, sounds like a sitcom about six guys in a trailer park trying to pay rent.
I understand the hardware argument, but I have a Macbook and a Xeon Hackintosh. Guess which one I like using more? At some point the extra raw power gives way to practical things like portability, display quality, big arse trackpads and the like.
FCPX has become a delight to use. I think that Apple received some necessary chastisement at the beginning. Back then, I couldn't stop tinkering with it, even when I was full-time on Premiere. Now that I'm full-time on FCPX, I don't ever get the urge to tinker with Premiere or do any work back in the Adobe ecosystem. Nothing wrong with it, but FCPX is just so dang nice. That counts for points when you spend ten hours a day using something.
I just want to point out that I just looked at Apple's website for the iMac Pro, and Hallelujah, the memory is socketed, so even if Apple doesn't say the memory is "user-upgradeable" it is at least "upgradeable" in the sense that anyone who has taken apart an iMac to, say, add an SSD (like I have) could potentially upgrade the RAM. In the case of my old 27" iMac, all it requires is patience (so much patience) and a clean environment free of cat hair and dust. I am optimistic that the new iMac will be similar. Heck, probably the CPU is socketed so that you can swap in the 18-core one in ten years when they're on eBay for $100. Don't lose heart, tinkerers, this is just another challenge. Or possibly you could send your iMac Pro to OWC or another service provider to have them do it if you have fear or unsteady hands.
