If you’re serious about your art and craft, you need to invest in the right tools. Even if you’re just starting out, it’s never too soon to start thinking about what computer hardware will best help you bring your visions to life. Apple computers are perfect for those working in creative industries due to their seamless integration with innovative software like Adobe Creative Cloud and Final Cut Pro, but how well do they really stack up? Is it worth investing in the latest release of Apple’s flagship Mac Studio computer? Let’s find out.
Apple MacBook Pro 15 – The Powerhouse
The new 15 MacBook Pro with Retina display packs even more power into a thinner design. The stunning Retina display is as close to a piece of printed paper as we’ve ever seen on a computer. And with its brilliant backlight, advanced pixel architecture, variable refresh rate, antireflective coating, high color saturation, wide viewing angle and 500 cd/m2 brightness it’s one of the most stunning notebooks you can own. This latest-generation model also features an amazing third-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processor that provides excellent performance yet still has enough energy efficiency to help make your battery last up to an incredible 12 hours.
Here’s How Much You Need To Spend
The Base MacBook Pro costs $1,499. The base iMac is $1,299. The entry-level 27 iMac with Retina display retails at a hefty $2,199. It’s true that all three of these machines offer plenty of power for running many of your favorite software applications; however, if you want to use graphics programs like Photoshop or Illustrator (both are made by Adobe), you may find that your machine is underpowered. While there are few things more frustrating than trying to run a program on an underpowered computer when it really needs a souped-up one, putting yourself in a position where you feel like you need to upgrade so soon after purchasing doesn’t have to happen.
Some Assembly Required
Apple’s latest addition to its popular line of Mac computers is aimed at people who need power. Whether you’re a graphics professional or a musician, video editor, or just someone who wants to multitask like crazy on their laptop, there are plenty of reasons why Apple’s new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a great choice. The $2,499 entry-level model boasts an Intel Core i7 processor up to 2.8 GHz; 16GB of RAM; and a 256GB SSD drive (the high-end option jumps up to 768GB). To put it simply: This computer isn’t messing around. It’s built for speed and it shows in everything from booting up to running multiple applications at once. In fact, Apple claims that during testing, users were able to run more than 30 applications simultaneously without slowing down performance — something I was able to confirm during my own tests.
Here’s What We Like About The iMac Pro
The new iMac Pro is a very impressive piece of hardware with a lot to offer. With over four million pixels, it’s going to be a great choice for anyone in digital imaging or design, where sharper displays with more accurate colors can make all the difference in productivity. It’s also got plenty of power under its hood to handle pretty much anything you could throw at it with an 18-core Intel Xeon processor, 4TB SSD drive space, 64GB RAM and AMD Radeon Vega graphics. Finally, Apple says that future generations of iMac Pro will have even more impressive hardware upgrades like support for 128GB RAM. On top of all that, the display on our model was nothing short of gorgeous!
Not So Great Things About The iMac Pro
iMac Pro is a powerful machine, but power comes with a price. The iMac Pro starts at $4,999, which is nearly twice as much as other iMacs. Those who can afford an iMac Pro will not be disappointed in its performance and flexibility; it’s a great computer. However, some users may be better suited by one of Apple’s less expensive models because they won’t be able to get their money’s worth out of an expensive computer that doesn’t suit their needs.
With their lower starting prices and generally reduced complexity, less-expensive models might help users avoid frustrating or disappointing situations that come from using an overqualified machine (or platform).
Verdict For The iMac Pro Vs. MacBook Pro
Which Should You Buy? – Today, Apple unveiled its new line of professional laptops, including a 13-inch MacBook Pro and an updated 15-inch model. Both models feature 7th Generation Intel quad-core processors and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. The two machines also feature AMD Radeon Pro 560X or 570X discrete graphics processors (GPUs). But is either model worth buying over a previous year’s model?
Let’s dive in to find out. I’ll start by looking at hardware specifications… [Full Details] Write a professional review based off the following description: The XPS 13 has always been my go-to laptop recommendation for those that wanted something more than an Ultrabook but didn’t need all of the power offered by most gaming laptops. This year’s refresh looks like it will be just as good with better battery life and much faster storage options.
