MaxiMax: Definitely a system for those with more money than sense.

Even with best money can buy workstations, animators in Pixar Studio render nearly 65 millions hours of footages for 90 minutes film. Sense? It's really not a machine for regular joes but that doesn't mean professionals that demand best tools for the job have more money than sense. In fact, it's the opposite. This is not some millionaire weekend Ferrari. They need this power house workstation to work.

gonzalu: A similarly configured HP Z840 is about $11,000 ... go to 44 cores and it bumps to $21,000 ... wonder how loud the Mac is since my Z820 currently running 24 cores dual CPU Zeons is dead silent at full tilt!

@nerd2 Oh no, now you got me. What is db? Database ??? and Load Balancing?

Sarge_: If you would have told me a few years ago that a top spec iMac with a 4tb hard drive would cost $13k I would have laughed in your face... I guess rich kids will con their parents into buying them. I can't figure out who else is intended to buy this...

Please show us your wisdom where can one get 4TB of pci-e storage at 3GB/2GB read & write speed for "your" 4TB price?

sebbe: As a photographer I don't see the need for such a computer. But I would prefer an EIZO or NEC display anyway.
About their prices: The only thing I would blame them are their prices for harddisks. 2800$ for a 4TB SSD is ridiculous.

Apparently not your grandma SSD, it's tested at 3GB/2GB read/write speed. Now, go search for how much this pci-e ssd cost in the market.

rialcnis: Years back Apple became another brand of PC/ Workstations but with the mediocre, insecure, OS.

Currently I like the new custom "Origin PC" workstations (or gaming) and the "Maingear" systems, with the best cooling and incredible options.

Origin PC was started by three execs originally with Alienware before Dell bought them.

Dell has nice workstations too, but not custom.

huh?

Beckler8: "Lighting and equipment", sure. An assaulter AND a liar - trump would be proud...

Let's see. A popular White male assaulting a female photo journalist. Well, that's totally Trump's Profile. He would be so proud and would likely retweet or invite Josh Homme to the White House.

snapa: So if you only have a 4k 60fps TV, is this cable/technology a complete waste of money?

BTW, anything higher than 4k is a complete waste, because the human eye can't see anything better than that on a TV or computer monitor, so what is the point?
There is a point when deminishing returns does come into affect, and we have hit that point with anything over and above 4k video.

i recall the days people said the same thing about 8Mpx camera is too much and we don't need 1080p as they can't tell the different between that and 720p.

Sonyshine: So people still use Facebook?

Most old people i know already started using FB, except a few with no friends or family. Nothing to share, i guess.

I can't wait for FB to charge Photographers using their platform to promote biz.

Hugo808: No. The best documentary images are B&W because it allows you to concentrate on the elements in the image and not get distracted like it's just somebody's holiday snaps,.

@photomeeting How you jump from still images to motion is beyond me. Op is saying color is distracting so i guess b&w must be too dull. Get it? Do you want to get into SLOW MOtion discussion next?

Art? show me what you got. Talk is cheap.

Father Bouvier: Yes, we all thought that picture with a sailor kissing a girl was great. But now we know it was sexual harassment. Had Allred found that guy, she would have sued his pant off, and that picture would have been exhibit #1, colored or not.

Definitely wouldn't be Trump, that pussy cat got bone spur likes 5 times whenever that's duty call to defend his country.

Erik Ohlson: I have a lot of 70 year old Kodachrome slides in almost pristine condition - and not stored in particularly good conditions. I Know of no other color film ( and very little similarly old B&W ) that has held up so well.

Of course, my little Panasonic "P&S" digital beats all of that: I won't be buying Ektachrome, sorry.

@Micheal Why won't digital files last for lifetime and more if it's kept properly? You can store these things in dozen other digital medium in multiple remote locations, multiple copies 1000000000th times easily than just one copy of film in one location. In fact, one snap shot from your phone are copies instantly to cloud if you set it up from the get go.

John Koch: A 12 TB drive means a lot of eggs in one basket. A warranty may replace a drive, but not the content. 12 TB is a lot to back up regularly too. Another question is whether the read and write speeds won't slow down as the drives fill. Is disc defragmenting (a slow chore) or clean-up no longer necessary?

Meanwhile, I note that a lot of desktop or laptop PCs sell with drives no larger than 1TB or 2TB. In my case, the sweet spot is between 3TB and 5TB. They also tend to cost under $40 / TB.

Kind of tired listen to egg in a basket argument for the last ten years. What? You going to buy couple dozen 100GB HDD, 4 Raid boxes, daisy chain it? The risk of your raid array break apart and not recovery is way higher than nowadays helium sealed 12TB HDD.

M Chambers: So after spending three years of Apple running a marketing campaign against the OLED panel, Apple has finally embraced it.

LOL, so there's no marketing campaign after all? but they did see some ads? may be in the key note? or they pull a Trump, bigly?

Osa25: “faceID” is something that was already on Samsung phones years ago, wasn’t it? And I don’t remember it being all that effective either - even a finger smudge on front-facing camera and it was all wonky.

I'm using the 2017 Surface pro i7 model now, the Face ID works about 50% of the time. I hate to tell the Anti-Apple naysayers this - When Apple do it, they do it right. That's why Apple users dont care about who did it first, we will wait util the technology is mature and Apple delivers one.
