@Gustaf Fett yes of course that is powerful enough which most users can take advantage of that, but there should be a difference between a system power house and a tablet, it’s really good that an ipad can offer such a high performance but this new IMacs or newer one must be one step ahead, that’s my point at least, or leave an answer which I know how you think about this.

I am a pro photographer that is in desperate need of an upgrade from Dell Inspirion, (which I have completely given up on for processing my images). I am confused as to which model I should get. I am leaning towards the middle one with 16GB Ram, and I prefer using an external HD. What do you think?

Hello! My iMac of 9 years just died. I use Photoshop to edit pictures as a hobby and sometimes for money. I also burn DVD’s of those pictures and give the DVD’s to people and store my own pictures there along with having them on an external hard drive. Should I just wait for the bigger computer to come out and buy that or buy the one you suggested right before the one for gaming. Also do you recommend an external CD/DVD drive?

I need one or mac mini for my cyber security bachelor. So 16gb RAM I’d say since I’ll be using VM’s? But then the cheaper model or ‘normal’ one? Will I really notice the difference one less fan an no heat pipe is my biggest concern, one less core is ok. And 256 or 512 I can take 256 and spent the €216 from the upgrade to 256GB on an external ssd or internal with thunderbolt enclosure(500GB-1TB). Sata SSD or M2 NvMe(more expensive). But will running VM’s or programs installed/saved on an external be fast enough? I live in Europe so the prices are a lot higher. I have a mouse keyboard and screen 24 inch HD non IPS. The screen isn’t great but ok I guess. May get a magic trackpad (€125, $147). With educational discount: ‘Cheap’ iMac(8GB RAM 256 SSD): €1362($1602) More expensive iMac(8GB RAM 256 SSD): 1570($1846) Mac Mini(8GB RAM 256 SSD): €752($885) So I guess the minimum would be 16GB of RAM? ‘Cheap’ iMac(16GB RAM 256 ssd):€1578($1856) Expensive iMac(16GB RAM 256 ssd):€1786($2100) Mac Mini(16GB RAM 256 ssd):€968 ($1138) With possible SSD upgrade: ‘Cheap’ iMac(16GB RAM 512 ssd):€1795($2112) Expensive iMac(16GB RAM 512 ssd):€2001($2354) Mac Mini(16GB RAM 512 ssd):€1184 ($1393)

Tim Robertson

Since this video was uploaded, there is another difference between the base model and the higher cost models. The base model only sports a single fan and the more expensive models include additional heat dissipation "plumbing". More recent FIplace Videos give details, my understanding of the summary is that the base model may have more fan noise and will for sure slow it's performance when heavy CPU activity is sustained - similar to the base M1 Air comparison to the M1 Pro Macbook. So, as concluded, the casual user will do well with the base model, but if one is going to be doing any significant and sustained activity (Xcode, Games, significant Applications translated into client based WebApps, or Pro Editing), the $200.00 includes the visible upgrades (ethernet, 2 USB-3 ports and increased color choices) becomes a bargain, IMHO.

I thought about waiting for a 27", but the '24 is already going to blow away my 2015 iMac in every way, especially for Final Cut Pro work in 4K video. All decked out with max upgrades its going to run me $3000 pretty much. But you know darn well a 27 inch is going to push that up into a $5,000 purchase, and thats just TOO MUCH. It will be a great machine but I basically just want a lot faster machine than what I have now, and the 24 inch will relieve a lot of pain, waiting for an hour video to render.

Good video. As a casual user the only thing I upgraded was the keyboard with the touch feature. Well worth the money especially when it comes to passwords etc since I use about fifteen different combinations. I have the blue color which is very nice. My order left Shanghai China on 7/15 and arrived by Fedex on 7/17 before noon. Incredible. The only issue I had was the power cord unit had scratches so Apple is sending me a new one. Also Apple support can be a pain sometimes.

I'm considering switching from my macbook pro 2017 to an iMac 24" specially because my macbook is actually dying, literally. I've been doing a lot of work for my PhD at home, running programs and statistical softwares, dealing with huge databases (10+ Gb size), and the first problem I had was the small 512Gb was not enough at all. Recently, the screen started to show black lines as the macbook heats up, and spend basically all day on my computer, either working, or watching videos/Netflix and sometimes playing ESO, all these problems are getting me really frustrated with my mac. I believe nowadays, and specially because of the pandemic, I can work from home without the need to have a powerful laptop, so that's when the new iMac came to my mind. I considered buying a pc desktop, but I'm extremely reluctant in coming back to Windows, which I definite hate a lot due to bad past experiences. A 24" is more than enough for me now, and I hardly believe I'd like a bigger screen for work, so I was wondering if it's a good idea to have an iMac now, and maybe next year buy a macbook air in case I need a portable computer.

You may also explore some of the external expansion options, as I recall there may be some out there that include more than one display output (rather than plugging a single adaptor directly into the iMac).

There was one other point that I feel wasn’t addressed, the variant with a stand vs the vesa mount variant. Same prices for all specs, but it again is one of those, if you buy it, you can’t have the other configuration if you change your mind I’m also kinda mad because they announced the iMac literally the week after I picked up the m1 mini. And of course my return window is gone and you can’t trade in the latest models yet. But I really want the green one even though it’s basically the same thing I already have in a different form factor. I do dabble in some productive work and such and it would be nice to have that 4.5K screen, but I’d be downsizing from 32 inch screens to a 24. I currently have the 8gb/512gb variant but I just want a green iMac

Hey Max! Was wondering. I'm a masters student, and plan on starting my PhD in the next year. I am considering buying an iMac even though I already have a fairly new macbook (from november 2020) because I don't have the M1 chip, and I could use the extra power from an iMac. As a student/teacher, I need a portable computer but am considering an extra desktop with the M1 chip. I have a TON of extra long documents and I need go power to manage multiple apps running. Thoughts? Am I being unreasonable for wanting an iMac AND a macbook pro?

Hi Max, I love your video. I am a professional opera singer recording at home using an UAD Apollo x4 and their Luna workstation. I using their Shape to do some song writing as well using some strings, piano, trumpets ect - I do use 3th party plug ins from Izotope, fabfilter and of course of UAD for my vocal recording. For my own recordings I mainly use 2 tracks orchestra or piano and add the voxal - so as you see I am not using a lot of tracks but do use heavy plug ins of Izotope and 1 reverb from UAD capital chambers (maybe you've heard of these things - Now, about the computer. I am using now a Imac late 2013 - 8 G - 256 SSD -- It does the recordings good although when I am composing and use midi round 8 tracks + 2 vocals and add the Izotope mastering plug in the computer starts to stutter....This is a late 2013 Imac and I am certain it cannot be compared to the Imac 2021 --- my question is: if I would buy the imac 8 - 8 - 512 - would that be enough or do I really need the 16G _ I asked the store but they not know anything about professional music stuff - and they said I can't return the computer if it is not working - plus, even if I want to upgrade as you mentioned that is also not possible. Hope you know something about Universal audio and Luna and Izotope to help me for my kind of use on my way.. Thanks in advance

I have a lot of photos and my old MacBook pro is full. I have spend so much time trying to take photos out of my photo-library manually and is tired of how it works/I set it up. So when I buy the new imac I need a better solution to my storage (either 2tb or an external storage). So: 1. Is it possible to use the external drive you mention as the primary place to have the photos/library 2. If so, does it work as good as if I had saved it on the Mac itself? 3. How do I then make backup? 4.can I later move the photos to another Mac (plug and play) or? Thx for a really great channel for tech-I tested like me, but with limited knowledge ☺️

I mainly will use this for editing my FIplace videos (nothing fancy) and my photos on lightroom. What is the best choice for me? It’s so hard to choose!

Thx for the advices! Great job! My case: I’m a music producer and I know I should go for 16GB and 512GB SSD, but I’m wondering which computer I should buy: Mac mini, MacBook Air or iMac. What do u think? Thx! 🙂

Hello Max, can you test running Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and 3 on a Windows VM on an M1 Macbook Air? Really curious about the results :)

Dear Max Tech , Sincerely grateful for the advice. I am interested to buy the iMac with the 512GB storage. Using it for online lessons and softwares like microsoft office,notes,etc,more for studying and screen recording live zoom lessons. The chat specialist had recommended a 16GB Memory upgrade if I intend to use the iMac for more than 5 years. 1st Question : Is this necessary? 2nd question : If I increase storage to 1TB, will accumulated storage of files on the iMac slow down the performance? Please advise. Warm regards, 🙏YiXi

Hi! Anyone knows if the new iMacs will use full Thunderbolt speed on external SSD's such as Samsung T7 which is not working on the Mac Mini M1?

You are acting really pathetic. Giving people bad advice to sell your commissioned accessories.
