[Oliver Peters] "So, can you spec a cheaper PC? Sure. But that is not a direct comparison part-for-part."

My guess is if I changed the12 core i9 to an 8 core Xeon it will increase the price around 1.5K for both CPU and motherboard, which means for 7K you will have a computer that kicks the stuffings out of the 6K base Mac Pro.

And more importantly I'm not comparing spec for spec, I'm comparing feature for feature and useability for usability. For editing with heavy rendering, as opposed to being a server on a render farm, the i9 system would be the way to go. A useable Mac Pro is going to be somewhere north of 8K, probably around 10K to compete with the 5-6K systems I'm describing.

I'm not knocking the Mac Pro for what it is designed for, I'm complaining that it wasn't designed for me, and neither is anything else that Apple offers.
