Who makes software and hardware to handle something like that? Can they still use a PC? What kind of printer? What kind of storage card?

5 years ago when 1Ds3 was out, a lot of pros bought it and i dont think anyone complained about storage space or processing speed.

mid-range photography machines in 2007 typically had 3.0 Ghz dual core (AMD 6000+) and about 2GB ram.

today, when buying mid-range photography machine, you would get 4 pieces of 4gb DDR3 for just under 100 USD and the new quad core 8 thread intel i7 3770K for 313 USD.

basically processing speed has more than quadrupled, so handing images 4 times the resolution should be no problem.
