rockjano: Oh people forget the whole thing and build a Hackintosh.
I did it
It works like a charm, fast as hell, cheap as it should be... if anything goes wrong I just go to the local computer shop and buy new stuff. I have 8 drives in my system no problem, fast video card, fast Intel CPU the whole thing IS FAAAST

I was a long-long time apple user (25 years) I will never buy a Mac again. Their operating system YES their machines NO.... never again....

@rockjano, Thanks for the info. I am very happy with my Mac but would like to do this as a project. I think it will be fun.

As regards your comment about rewriting software for Apple's own chips. You may remember when Apple migrated from OS 9 to 10 and then from Power PC chips to Intel. All software had to be re-written. However, the "old" software ran seemlessly in emulation, an amazing solution and amazing coding. I expect Apple will do the same again.

Cheers!

Nanospeed1: I'm not a Leica fan. Not for any "ideological" or sentimental reasons but strictly for rational, pragmatic reasons. There is no question that the rangefinder concept has been obsolete even in the film era since the 60's. Still the Leica - justifiably - could hold its position due to excellent mechanical engineering (sturdiness+reliability) and excellent optics. And of course a decreasing minority of photographer preferred the rangefinder style of shooting.... Leica was expensive then too but not "sky high" expensive. And yes, that camera was an investment for decades as far as the longevity and long-term reliability was concerned. Now we are in the digital era. The "digital" Leica is clearly an anachronism of the past, brutally overpriced for what you get. Apart from the greatly finished externals, there is no complicated and sturdy mechanical engineering involved at all.

Gentlemen, horses for courses.

joe_leads: Hilarious. You guys sound like a bunch of cheap bitches from the block, who are moaning about the latest Gucci bag price increase, because only the rich gals, who won’t get laid as much as you anyways, can afford them.

lol, too true.

Debankur Mukherjee: Leica is like Rolls Royce so increase in price doesn't matter much.........most people get Leica to uplift their status........

People who can afford Leica don't need to uplift their status.

Outside of (the insular world of) Photography most people (that I know) don't even know what Leica is. When I go out with my M8 I have to explain who Leica is, what a rangefinder is and so on. The experience of others may differ.

At least Leica is a successful German company unlike Heinkel which Bombed.

jaykumarr: All I can say is, Apple will buy this new processor for $50 etc than existing processor and increase the price of the mac book by $500.

@Torsten, I agree with you, the technological challenges are huge. However, you may remember the transition from the PowerPC architecture to Intel and OS9 to OS10 both of which required apps to be totally re-coded including Adobe's. Old OS8 and OS9 app ran seemlessly in emulation until the transition was done at code level. So it can be done.

BTW I like your gear list.

Will this cpu be as cheap as chips? It is a Golden Wonder that AMD are still in business, but when the chips are down will they chip-in with a new cpu themselves?

Torsten Huff "I don’t understand Apple’s decision to start designing and manufacturing their own non-mobile CPUs"

1) Because they can.

2) I suspect, however, considering the points you have made, this decision by Apple may be just a "bargaining chip" (pardon the pun) in squeezing a better price from Intel. Plus, they can also sell their own custom chips to other vendors.

@Ergo607, lol, it seems you have pissedoff some adobe fanbois/Trolls, so much for the virtues of free speech from the land of the free.

BlueJakester: You had me at "no subscription." I'll never rent software. Lightroom 6 is the end of the line for my purchase of Adobe products, now that new versions are subscription only.

@dd1989, For professionals I would tend to agree with you. Many here including myself are not professionals, and probably many, myself included, have rather modest incomes. Thus, £120 per annum constitutes a different persective.

Neither do I use old software, instead I use Picktorial and Affinity which cost me £0 per month. If people want to pay the subscription then that's fine. Adobe products are not for me, not anymore. Maybe a growing trend.
