Just curious if anyone on this forum did the research and subsequently purchased an Apple iMac
Pro variety, they are quite expensive but I am just curious if anyone on this forum has feedback from
Usage/Experience, it’s now been out for a few Qtrs ... in my current setup my (circa late 2009’) iMac was the processing heart of a multi-zone system, but alas no longer can keep up (and basically fried), I need to make a change.

Can you upgrade the boot disc to SSD. I recently did this on my Mac mini 2011 and it’s like a new machine.

500gb ssd was around £100 from Amazon.

I could only dream of owning one but, if you're up for it, I noticed Apple iMac Pros Discounts over at Macrumors. The article also details other Micro Center deals and refurbed is guaranteed as new so may be worth a punt :O)

Just picked up a 10-core, at a discount. I had upgraded the RAM on my circa 09’ iMac, but the video card fried and was no longer in (replacement Radeon? Sp?) production, it was time... pick it up 6/1, thanks.
