[Shawn Miller] "What's wrong with that? Dual 10 core workstations aren't exactly rare as modern workstations go."

It was a dual-socket 40-core Dell 7910, about $17,000 not including the storage and monitors. Nothing wrong with that -- in fact it's good they could afford those since he said Premiere on a Mac Pro wasn't fast enough. Of course the Mac Pro is plenty fast enough to edit Red Raw 6k using FCPX, since I can do that on my iMac.

But since everyone doesn't use FCPX, Apple must deliver the necessary hardware performance, else they are relegated to providing editing platforms that are only viable for FCPX. Vashi's case is just one example of what increasingly happens. Had the Mac Pro been fast enough (or available in a more robust configuration) he'd have probably used that. As it was Apple lost the sale and Vashi bought several Dell workstations. That's what happens when Apple doesn't update hardware for three and 1/2 years in a performance-critical market segment.
