  • The monitor is LG 27UL600-W and was a clearance. It is nice. I am using HDMI connection and 2560x1440 mostly. I will only use 4K for Lightroom/Photoshop as the text is too small. I don't sense any ...
  • So I am now all set with my Mini - 16GB/2TB, 8 core video (which I found on the Apple refurbished store) and I am happy with this. I purchased a 27", 4K LG monitor clearance from Best Buy and ...
  • 16gb, 2 TB and a 27” LG monitor now. Very happy. 4K is good for me. I never used the iMac at full resolution. The monitor is LG 27 UL600, which is a 4K IPS screen. I think it is pretty close to ...
  • I'm at 1920x 1080 right now with an old BenQ 27" that has awful text and mediocre picture quality. I could try a Costco monitor because they have an easy return policy. I only have a 23.5 inch ...
  • Mini is here and it seems faster and less buggy that my iMac so I'll probably keep it. For Parallels, I realized I have a 2011 Mini that I can use headless so I am going to try that using Screen ...
  • That's good advice. I would point out that my 27" office monitors at work are basic business monitors, I doubt they are 4K
  • Now on to the display.  I’ve read the thread with respect to display and I really don’t understand the difference between 4K and 5k.  My desk is small and the 27 iMac is probably too big, so I was ...
  • Just ordered a mini and went with the 16 gb as all the reviews suggested that. Internal storage is fast and the fastest external storage is not much less expensive. I was going to go with 1 TB ...
  • That’s my thought.  And it’s ok if that’s the case. My new Mac is special order evidently and it will take a couple weeks and I am becoming increasingly impatient but such is the life of a Mac ...
  • So I bit. My iMac is crashing, and I just ordered the M1 Mini with 16GB/2TB.  My iMac has 2TB and, although I am not even using half of it, it just makes sense to have the room for video (I like ...
  • Going from 1 TB to 2 TB internally costs $400. If the external drives are as fast as the internal drive it makes more sense to get the smaller drive. When an M2 comes out it's an easier path to ...
  • Is this one of the faster ones? https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/owc-envoy-pro-ex-thunderbolt-3 thanks
  • So after a period of careful review the cost of a new iMac is not justified to me. I will likely get a Mini and an external monitor and an extra SSD.  The value is not there for the iMac Can ...
  • Happy to see this, especially with the intermediate size. I will likely order one to replace my 27”.  If I need more screen real estate will add second monitor or use iPad This is good news
  • I understand that running windows is not an option, but I have a number of Intel-based MacBook Pros available, including a 15" I use as a laptop. So 1 program that I use 20 minutes a month isn't ...
  • Created discussion thread New computer dilemma
    2015 iMac showing its age and looking to upgrade. Dilemma is wait for new iMac or plunge for the new Mini. Use case: 80% web based or MS Office/iWork for work, 20% photo/video hobby.  I use ...
  • Replied in Fear of flying
    As a new drone pilot, I, too, have that fear of flying and I am hoping it gets better with time. I have to remember the limit of my loss would be a couple hundred bucks as I have a Mavic Mini. But ...
  • It’s all good now.  I’ve reclaimed 70gb of hard drive space to use on my laptop. Thank you
  • I saw your answer. Does that corrupt that file/package? I am fine deleting the originals as long as it doesn't delete the original RAW files in the cloud.  Thanks again
  • Thanks for all the replies. I am talking about Lr, not LrC. I upload the photos from the camera to a laptop and it is all synced to the cloud and the laptop has an 80 gb file (which I understand is ...
