  • Sorry I can't help answer this. I did not even try a migration (I moved to LR over 3 years ago. Version 3 shipped in 2010) and there were no functional migration tools back then. I just bit the ...
  • I bailed on Aperture back early in the v3 release. I hung on through a couple of bug releases and on to, IIRC, v3.1. For those 6 or 7 months the program hung, slowed to a crawl, failed to complete ...
  • Not the newest (2014) model. No quad core.
  • Software is a gas. It expands to fill its container.
  • The only thing I would add is that you need to fix the file/application associations. One of the really rude things about Windows 8 was the way it threw you into the "Modern" interface without ...
  • Possibly. But I've owned a number of Dell desktops, many with "user upgrades" and never had a warranty issue turned away by them. I will admit that it has been over 4 years since I owned a Dell ...
  • There is nothing preventing you from getting an $80 128GB Crucial SSD for the boot drive and repurposing the 1TB spinner for data. At seven hundred bucks the system is a good deal. Add the extra ...
  • An even better deal (from their Thanksgiving Savings flyer) is essentially the same system (i7-4790, Geforce 475 4GB, 16GB RAM, 1TB HD, etc except with Windows 8.1) for $300 off which makes the ...
  • Actually, there is one at $999. The $1099 version includes Microsoft Office (Home and Student) for the extra hundred bucks. Nice thing about buying from Costco is the 90 day return policy and the ...
  • And the hassle of getting a Hackintosh to work. More work than I want to do.
  • If you are a member, Costco has a Dell XPS 8700, i7 4970, 32GB of RAM, etc, for just over $1k. Graphics card is a Geforce GT 720. Would make a good photo editing platform. Only real problem with ...
  • Jim hit the nail squarely on the head. Way too many variables and moving parts. KISS is a very good rule. Get an i7-based system (4790 is the current sweet spot for price performance) with 16GB of ...
  • Replied in MacPro vs PC
    Just trying to keep it real, Brian.... Glad I could be helpful.
  • Replied in MacPro vs PC
    I tend to shy away from theological discussions such as Mac vs PC. Internet fora such as DPR are documentary evidence for Stephen Covey’s observation that, “Most people do not listen with the ...
  • Replied in The ball
    We all get carried away occasionally, especially when faced with the tsunami of complaints that comprise the bulk of any open internet forum. Thanks for the all-too-rare admission of crankiness. ...
  • When we get to a certain age, Bill, waiting is a large part of what we do ;=)) We just moved back to Colorado after spending two years in Texas so it will be next year before I can afford to start ...
  • Replied in The ball
    You spoiled a very valid point about Canon sensor quality with a slap at folks who have different photographic interests and needs. "... just to rotary cannon some bifs or little Debbie's soccer ...
