Honestly - and I’m saying this as a PC guy through and trough - but dont bother.

That will still be an anemic machine, and while it’ll be faster, it wont be anywhere near what you would want from an upgrade.

^^^ that's my feeling too. If you're going to do an upgrade make it one you can live with for a while.

Right now the best bang for your buck - by far - is actually the new Mac Mini M1. But that requires adjusting to a new OS and eco system which can be pretty though.

It's an impressive machine for the money, but yes, it's very new.

The beauty of that is it will deliver the best possible speed today for your kind of tasks. It wont scale like a 12 core AMD for parallel import/export, but it will be SERIOUSLY faster for anything interactice like processing images and such. And while it’s not cheap, it’s not expensive either, and in terms of performance for your $$$ - it’s an outstanding deal.

I don't agree. Switching eco systems can have a lot of indirect expenses and headaches.

Especially when switching to a brand-new architecture like the M1's Apple Silicon ARM. It's a different world; I'd suggest spending some time reading the "Mac Talk" forum or maybe the Macrumors M1 forum for info and suggestions before switching.
