  • I would ideally like 1TB but I need to compromise somewhere to get it within my budget. I think if my raw files are on an external drive I can manage with 512GB.
  • Thanks Mike. Yep that does sound good, I’ll admit. But two macs and the T5 is beyond my budget right now. I need to give this some more thought.
  • Ok, how do you manage your Lr catalogue?
  • Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I think I will go for the 2018 MBP as on balance the extra money is probably worth it to me for faster performance now and in the future.
  • The 13” would be the same price as the refurb 15” I’m considering and between those two options I would take the 15”. I will add a nice monitor at some point.
  • Thanks Peter, lots of good suggestions here. I should have clarified that I’m in Australia, which is why the MBP I’m looking at retails at A$4,099. The 13” custom built by Apple is around A$3,300 ...
  • I have considered this but would prefer just running one machine.
  • Thanks Tom good to know!
  • Thanks that is really helpful.

  • Thanks Peter...sounds sensible and you’ve saved me $500!
  • Thanks
  • Thank you - no I didn’t know all that! My research seems to suggest a RAID solution is ‘best’ for my purpose. I don’t need NAS - DAS would serve. I think the DS218+ is USB3. Yes I wasn’t very ...
  • Created question thread Advice on RAID for Lightroom
    I’ve got a mid-2010 iMac which I’ve upgraded with a 1TB SSD and 12GB ram. It has served me well but it really struggles with processing raw files from my D810 and I think it’s time for an upgrade. ...
  • I went from a D7000 to a D700 so have some experience with this. The D700 is a great camera and Stacey’s comments are spot on. At the time I got the D700, I had mostly DX lenses and knew I wanted ...
  • I’m reading this with interest as I’m pretty much in the same position - hobbyist with a 24, 35 and 85 1.8 primes who loves shooting portraits. I’m contemplating the Sigma because I used to enjoy ...
