[Herb Sevush] "There's nothing possible about that, it's definitely the reason. That's why I spent 1K on my chair, and it's why hammock breaks are part of my working day. I've spent too long working in situations we're I'm fighting my own gear as I'm fighting the clock, it leads to sleeping on facility couches and rising bleary eyed to unproductive outcomes. I've often said that an editor's best, most creative tool is time spent away from a project, to that I will add a positive working environment."

I too spent about that on a chair (though used I got it for $600). My chair has lasted 20 years though and will continue to do its job until I retire. Depending of course on the media you're working with, I just don't see that the 2019 iMac versus the new Mac Pro will be a definitive difference in life. Sure, if you're editing RAW multicam. But drive speed is really going to hit you there. And don't render breaks do exactly what you want? Time away from the machine.

If I look at what frustrates my workflow the most, it's not processing power. It's disk speed, it's NAS weirdness, it's the machine not doing what it has handled easily previously, it's software bugs, it's OS bugs. Maybe when the machine ships and I see what it can actually do, I'll be convinced otherwise.
