Our iMac review was pretty positive, but we got to thinking: If we’re going to want external graphics anyway, does a Macbook just make more sense?

  2. With the external GPU upgrade and a 40 lb battery backpack, you can get about 8 total hours while running iMovie or KSP.

  3. So best would be a budget Imac i5 9600 with egpu – could you confirm this (given the fact that you may use the expensive egpu also with other items) ?

  4. Love anthony, he clearly has a deep understanding of the tech which is lacking in the industry imo (no offense to anyone in particular i'm just a huge nerd for it)

  5. I am one of those "professionals" you speak of. I run 3 photography companies and routinely process 2,000 images per weekend in my busy season. These files are 45MP images and many times they are stacked (5 and 7 image HDR's). I currently run a 2011 iMac (and finally lost my mind and decided to sink some profits into a new machine). The Macbook obviously gave me some mobile options that may be beneficial at some point. However when I looked at the COST of a Macbook Pro equipped properly, PLUS a suitable monitor for my desktop work…versus….the price if an i9 2019 iMac plus SSD drive/ 64GB of RAM etc….there was a clear winner. The iMac is still the right choice. One photographer's opinion certainly.

  6. I’m really interested in what people think about a high-end iMac vs a base iMac Pro. There are a few differences between the two with just a small price difference.

  7. I’m looking for a new computer, and I thought to switch to Apple instead of PC, but in my research I found is a bad time for Apple. But I really want to switch because I’m tired of PC. Idk if was my HP laptop or what, but I’m sick of how slow it is, the annoying noise of the fan and the unlimited bugs and glitch that even resetting it, they don’t stop.
    What I mostly do is write and make research in the web, sometimes I read a PDF file and make Power Point presentations, but as MacBook’s keyboards have problems, I’m considering the iMac, I would prefer the portability of a MacBook, but I’m willing to sacrifice it so I can switch, and as I already have an iPad, it’s portable, it’s not a laptop, but it can help.
    So, what do you recommend? I buy a MacBook, an iMac or a PC? In PC I’m considering a ThinkPad or a Dell.

  8. Anthony's a smart dude, and really good at explaining things to idiots, much like Linus. Hope to see more of him in the videos!!

  9. Betcha wish you'd waited a few weeks to make this video so you could compare the 8 core MacBook to the 8 core iMac.

  10. Anthony vids ftw. He's the kind of guy you want to teach you stuff about computers. He's so relaxed and laid back. Keep up the good work!
