I want to upgrade my old symphony 6.0.4 but the computer matrix on teh Avid website only lists the new MAC Pro.

Does anyone know?



Thanks a bunch.

It'll run it. The latest MacBook Pros will, the MacMinis...

Thanks, Shane. I wasn't sure because it wasn't on the authorized list on the Avid website. And also because on the Apple store site it doesn't let me build a custom machine and the ram is only 8 gigs.

I have a call in to a business rep at the nearest Apple retail store in Albany, NY.

Thanks for your help. You are really generous with your time and advice.

Tony

Only 8GB? What is Apple doing? Lordy...making machines more and more consumer..pushing pros away. Might want to look at PCs. I KNow...it's windows. But Avid runs better on windows anyway. I say this as a die hard Apple fan too..not a big fan of Windows. But I'm thinking my next machine for Avid might have to be one...

Yup, only 8 GB. I went online last night and again just now and there was no "SELECT" button. Only a "BUY NOW" button.

OOPS! I just clicked the "BUY NOW" button and it's giving me options.

Whew! Had me worried i would have to buy a PC. A lot of my software is MAC only.

Thanks again, Shane.

Would you max out the Radeon to 4GB or is that overkill?

I'm maxing out the ram and going with a 3tb fusion drive.

Avid doesn't leverage the GPU much at all. So it depends on the other apps you use...if you need it.

That's what I thought. That's why I'm going with the iMac instead of the MAC Pro. But if it;s only $250 more for the better Radeon I may go with it. Cheaper than upgrading in six months or a year. ;-)

I find myself saying the same thing. I love Apple and I've worked on them since the beginning of my career. It no longer makes sense to me to buy a new Mac as a business decision. PSs are faster, more configurable and less expensive.
