iMac Set Up for Video and Photography
Aug 9, 2013

I'm a photographer that use PC for the last 10 years and I am going to start doing video.

My PC needs an update but I'm thinking to move to Apple.

Just two questions I need answer for you guys:

1. What do you think about this configuration for video editing:

-iMac Retina Display 27-inch:

-3.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz

-32GB SDRAM

-3TB Fusion Drive

- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR52.

Do you think is worth to upgrade to 3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz for $200

What do you think about the Apple USB SuperDrive? It is worth it for $80 or just buy another brand?

I'm planing to use Photoshop CS 6, Final Cut, Lightroom and some plug ins compatible with PSCS6.

Thank you so much for your time and advice.

Marcelo
