If you were at NAB this past April you would have noticed one thing. iMacs were EVERYWHERE. I found 2 Mac Pros in the AJA Booth.

I don't know why Smoke 2013 running on an iMac is a major turnoff, I'm personally excited as we get ready to sell off 5 Mac Pros and replace them all with iMacs. We've been editing with iMacs for 5 or 6 years now as an Edit Assist workstation.

5 brand new workstations for just over $16,000 and they can run Avid, Adobe and Autodesk. I say bring it on! At NAB they were the talk of the show not only because of Smoke being more edit friendly but BECAUSE it was running on the iMac.

As Tim says, you aren't "forced" to do anything, just like you're not forced to run Smoke 2013. If you want a Big Iron system, you're gonna have to buy an older Mac Pro, a Windows workstation or a Linux workstation. Just use what you want and move on.
