Tom, seriously your derision of the iMac is just silly when the entire show floor at NAB is full of them. I get it, you don't like iMacs and you want to tell everyone that we must have Big Iron systems to get the most out of the new software. That's great, go buy the biggest baddest system out there, put 100GB of RAM in there, 5 nVidia cards and go to town.
Smoke 2013 is kicking ass on the 27" iMac in the booth. Adobe CS6 runs great on my two year old 27" iMac at home. Avid Media Composer 6 runs great on my two year old 27" iMac at home.
The point is, the 27" iMac is a GREAT editing workstation and for the price of your one Big Iron system, I'll be able to install at least three iMacs. For my business that means I'm running three suites on an hourly charge earning a return on investment much quicker than three Big Iron systems.
You don't want one. I get it, you don't need to keep repeating that.
