[Oliver Peters] "A day rate for a home studio - editor + gear/room - should be minimum of $1K-2K/day in most medium US markets. "

Of course this brings up the point of if you're charging by the day or hour what's the financial incentive to speed up the process slightly with a Mac Pro? Do you think clients will be convinced to pay a higher day rate because you have a slightly faster Mac? I don't think so. In these cases, the smart money is on a well-fitted iMac (not even iMac Pro).

Even if in Herb's case you bid out whole projects. Unless you're turning down other projects that you could take on with a slight speed boost in productivity, the financial incentive for getting the fastest possible machine isn't there either.

The Mac Pro is a machine for workflows that do not work well with existing Mac hardware.
