fyngyrz: And in a few years, with the machine still working just fine, Apple will arbitrarily say "you can't upgrade the OS on this machine."

As they have with my 64-bit, 12/24 core, 3 GHZ, 64GB, 2tb/2tb 2009 Mac Pro.

So that's about 8 years before new/upgrade application software starts to become incompatible with your $13,200 machine due to using features in the OS that are denied to you by Apple.

If you take that $13,200 over 8 years, you're paying $1650 per year, or $137.50 a month.

Some might find those numbers interesting.

The old Mac Pros were great (I am not talking about the black table trash bin here of course)… Superior design for pros. So easy to switch anything in them including the 4 HDD. I miss those.

mailman88: Fully loaded is right, of BS.
Who in their right mind would spend $13,000 for a computer?

Oh, and to answer your question, just someone who has the use of it.

This reminds me when Average Joe asks a graphic designer why pay $999 for Helvetica font family when you have Arial already installed on your computer for free. Sure, if you do not see the difference, all you need is Arial… But when typography is one of your working tools, that's another story.

Alex Akai: No matter how good this is, it has the worst and most primitive Explorer (Finder ?) compared to a Windows Explorer. I cant believe Apple is still in the Stone Age of computing when it comes to exploring your files in your computer. This is the ONLY reason I will not use a MAC.

Let's be clear, Windows made significant progress just because their room for improvement was absolutely phenomenal ;)).

mbot: Apple has delusions of grandeur, it always has. But Apple will gladly bleed any millionaire who has more money than brains.

I can put together the same spec in a PC for half the price.😁

When is Appple gonna cease this absurd charade?

Now you know the difference between the guy who runs a successful business and the guy who builds cheap PCs at home… ;)

And how much do you value your time? If your time is worth nothing then I am sure you will also find a lot of people who will ask you to build them cheap PCs…

Daniel Clune: Imacs are over priced. There just using standard PC parts now. You pay through the nose for the OS. I build my own Pc's and can do that for 1/3 the price imac charges. If you really believe the Apple OS is worth that then have at it. Oh this super priced one is way over kill. Zeon processor are made for severs not for photo of video editing. You will never use that much ram either.

If you think it is expensive, it is just that you do not need one. After all, I tend to think that a 437 million dollars Airbus A380 is way too expensive! But I heard Emirates is about to buy about 30 of them… Just depends on your needs and the money you will make out of it.

xPhoenix: Let's see...should I buy a car, or a computer that will be obsolete in 6 months?

Well, as I suppose everybody here understands, this is a working tool, so, if your work justifies it (after all, how much costs a camera like an Hasselblad H6D-100C and a few lenses, another working tool, much more expensive I guess…), it may actually allow you to make money and why not buy a car, or two… Of course, for personal use such as video games or surfing the web, I am sure there are a lot of better options… ;)

It really looks like the one many here have been (maybe too long) waiting for. That is great news !!

OBI656: I will not elaborate on this subject since it will be a longer story. Therefore make it strait simple, this photographer who ever it is, is a cheep idiot.

WOW, congratulations for such a constructive comment…
You, on the contrary, seem to be so smart!

op1318: So, i guess the bottom line must be something like "never publish any of your photographs to Wikimedia". I am quite sure Mr Slater learnt this lesson (the hard way).

Did you say 'someone'?

On article What we want in a macro shot - Detail (56 comments in total)

The first image definitely looks like it has been made with several pictures stitched together, not a single photograph. In-focus and out-of-focus areas in different parts of the image look very strange to me. Am I right?
