looking to buy the new iMac, advice?

I use a Macbook Pro, 2.8 quad core 16 GB RAM. Memory flash 512 + 27 "scree of love at first sight, but I'm looking to buy a new iMac to replace, is there a new should be out? It will be physically larger?   64gbRAM?

When it comes out?

Apple said nothing about the new iMacs to come.

and we are not allowed to speculate on such things in these forums.

If you can wait until in October, when the new Mac is generally revealed.

  • Buy the new iMac and need help to understand the new options

    Replacement of the motherboard of my 2009 end iMac is unaffordable, so I'm looking to buy a new one. But the 'talk' has my head swimming. I know I want a 21.5 inches and that's it. My biggest complaint to my death machine now it was slow. However, I attributed as uVerse (Internet) and not my Mac; Maybe I was wrong?

    My previous was 33. GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8 GB, DDR3, a SATA 1 TB disk. I'm an independent publisher, it's full of documents, PDF files and tons of photos but apart from that... I did not use the design software (although I want to go in this area) and pretty much could have several tabs in Safari, Facebook, Word and Adobe open at the same time... nothing too taxing.

    So what do I need? I read everything I can find and I can't yet answer that question!

    Do I need a Fusion player (and what it is anyway)?

    What is the difference between a Fusion of 1 TB drive and a 256 GB or 512 GB flash drive?

    If I get in InDesign or Quark, Photoshop, will it take more RAM so I should just go with 16 now?

    Is the standard 2.7 GHz quad-core i5 processor fast enough, or should I switch to 2.9 or even the quad of 3.1 GHz with i7 processor? (allowing it to run faster, more RAM or higher processor?)

    Any advice or the definition terms would be MOST appreciated! Thank you!

    In your situation, I would buy the 1 TB drive fusion, quad-core processor i5 2.7 GHz with 16 GB of RAM. The RAM is perhaps an exaggeration, but you cannot add it later these days so I think 16 GB is safe. You should get a noticeable performance gain compared to your current system.

    IME, most of the complaints "My Mac is slow" result of naïve users be swindled by adding the third "crapware" such as antivirus programs, "cleaners", "optimizers" and "extensions". After a report of EtreCheck for your current computer see if it is the problem.

    It is possible that adding an SSD in your current setup will give you the extra boost you are looking for, but if you use the machine to make a living, I'd be inclined to think that 7 years is old enough. Be sure to ask your accountant and covers the cost of your new machine against the tax.

    Please take the opportunity to review your backup strategy. When it's your life on the line, you must have at least two external drives for backups. Keep one off-site and on-site, and rotate each week.


  • migration to the new iMac iMac

    Hi all

    I am looking to buy a new iMac 27 "to replace my iMac 24" aged 8 years.

    I intend to use the "Migration Wizard" (first time) and I would like clarification on a trifle of file transfers.

    First, files such as emails are copied in their entirety?

    Second, I assume that the "Migration Wizard" copy only through the elements still in use? In other words, it is not clone the older drive? I want to leave behind trash of the multitude of old programs, etc. which have been removed over the years and indeed to start with a completely clean Mac except for what's current.

    Thank you very much


    When you use Migration Wizard, you can choose what to bring: I suggest you bring your user account (which should bring all your letters, and documents), but do NOT bring the applications and settings.

    In the old days, reinstall the applications was a pain (often searching for old CD case to find serial numbers), but now with many applications from the App store, resettlement is quick and easy (sign in with the same Apple ID and download a copy fresh and up to date).

  • The new iMac 4 k is ready for video editing?

    I want to buy the new iMac 21.5 ' 4 K for video editing and Im not sure if its Integrated GPU or the rest of the hardware can handle the work. I usually work with 1080 p video, but I've read that its GPU is quite limited. Please I need help.

    You will have no problem using the iMac of the retina for editing 1080 p video. The 27-inch model includes a GPU dedicated with its own memory, however. You decide: http://www.apple.com/imac/specs/

  • The upgrade of my iMac for the new year: advice requested

    I intend to buy a '5 K' 27"iMac very soon in the new year. My current iMac is great, but the new iMacs can support 64 GB of RAM (from trust OWC), and mine is only 32 GB, end of story. I really need the impetus of extra RAM for my work. Right now, I'm still on 10.8.5, as are the many benefits I know. But I simply must have the biggest capacity of RAM. My concern is the operating system. Can someone please give me some advice on how I should migrate my relatively valuable software without problem?

    In the past, I managed to carry around with only a few bumps, but I realize the Mavericks realize / El Capitan are slightly different beasts OS to the Lion. So, in general, I'm in Logic Pro (of course!), with Kontakt as my pillar. In addition, plenty of third-party plugins and related software that could be a minefield. What would be my best strategy for getting up and running relatively smoothly? I ask this, because my time is at a premium, it is never really a period I would call convenient to do this, as I'm sure that many pros will understand.

    I want to just be prepared for eventualities, that perhaps the community already have experience. Sorry, I really do not have to trawl all the threads though. He is currently a deadline after another, but I don't know that I can migrate successfully if I have good info on the new OS.

    Really appreciate any help on this! Thank you...

    Might help to know what equipment will be attached to the new beast. There has been some problems with El Crapitan from the beginning, but I think that most of them have been flattened, even if Apple OS latest have more load. Apple is trying to get os x and iOS under development platform even if there were a few bumps. Just make sure that your plugin is model compatible as well as all third-party drivers.  Bloom time is is more directly supported.

    These can help.

  • I am looking to buy a 'new' ipod classic. IPod Superstore claims get the new Apple iPod that Apple is still making them for 5 years, but only to sell them to a few suppliers for resale. Is this possible?

    I am looking to buy a 'new' ipod classic. IPod Superstore claims get the new Apple iPod that Apple is still making them for 5 years, but only to sell them to a few suppliers for resale. Is this possible?

    Probably not still making them, but Apple political is to the service of produced at least five years after they is no longer manufactured and sold

    "Owners of iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac products can get the services and Apple parts or service providers from Apple for 5 years after that the product is longer manufactured,' which is

    Vintage and obsolete products - Apple Support

    With the iPod, 'maintenance' means often giving you a replacement to pay the off-guarantee fee, which is $ 299 for the last classic model of the iPod, according to this document

    Pricing of the Service - The Apple iPod Support

    So Apple probably has a stock that's enough to last up to five years after 2014 (when the last classic model of the iPod has been abandoned).  This provider is unlikely to be an authorized dealer, as well as the iPod has not perhaps be covered by the standard warranty of one year.  That's why it comes in a regular white box, not a retail box.  It's supposed to be a replacement of maintenance for the iPod classic (latest model) owners.  It can be 'used', but it is still old.  Parts like LCD, HDD and the age of the battery by sitting in a warehouse.

  • Should I buy a new iMac?

    I currently have an iMac that I bought in February ' 08. It has 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I'm on OS 10.6.8.  I upgraded the memory a few years ago.  Things seem to become a little slow on this subject. We may need the latest version of numbers that supposedly requires OS X 10.10.4.  Should I buy a new iMac, or are there things I can do to improve and accelerate and hold remote buying a year or two?  If I buy an iMac, should I buy a new airport because my current one is almost as old as the Mac?

    Thank you

    The airport should be fine, unless you have the intention to improve your Internet connection at Gigabit speeds... WiFi has not changed that much.

    It's probably a good idea to consider a new Mac in the near future, however. This one is about the end of his life.

  • How to migrate the imac 2007 to the new iMac using the TM backup drive?

    My mid 2007 iMac does start more (gray screen of death) so I have a new iMac on command.

    I expect to use the Migration Wizard when the new machine arrives in a week or two from here.  I'll need to do it from my Time Machine backup disk however.

    The backup TM drive is a TB drive WD MyBook Studio 2 2 (physical hard drives 2 x 1 TB) in a RAID 1 array.  This is the Firewire 800 and it looks like 2 USB as well.

    The new iMac looks like it's fall in love 2 and USB 3.

    So I guess I'll need an adapter of some sort to migrate my stuff to the new iMac maybe?  Can someone advise please?

    Connect the drive via USB. No adapter is required.


  • I am looking to buy a new PC soon, what I have to buy a new copy of vista, or can I use my code on my new PC?


    I have a copy of windows vista that I installed on my laptop, I am looking to buy a new PC soon, what I have to buy a new copy of vista, or can I use my code on my new PC? I do not plan to use my laptop again once I get this PC is it possible to transfer the license via?

    No problem.

    First of all, backup all your data of the laptop if you have not already.

    When you have done this, the best way to do this is to delete the partition with Vista on it. See the website below for more information:


    Once you have finished deleting your partition, the laptop will have nothing about it, so you can choose to reinstall an earlier version of Windows or simply put away to deal with later. You can now legally install the copy of Windows Vista on your new machine.

  • Problem of strange color InDesign on the new iMac, retina 27 inches

    My old iMac 27 suddenly descended upon me and I replaced it with the new iMac 27 retina.

    Now, I have the strangest kind of problem of color I've ever met, but so far only InDesign. I him have not seen in Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge, online or in any other thing with pictures.

    Sometimes, the images on InDesign look exactly as they should. Sometimes, the pictures same look flat and washed out. Other times, super saturated.

    The same image can look flat and washed out, then move just before my eyes Super saturated! Later he might well go flat again. So the next time I did scroll, look just... and so on...

    In theory, this should not affect my final print product - the same pictures look just the way they are supposed to when opened in InDesign in Photoshop, but it's really aggravating and annoying. I would like my InDesign product to watch on screen as close to what goes in their print job real as possible, even if the only place it really counts is what it looks like in Photoshop.

    Anyone know what is happening? Is that what I can do about it?

    Thank you!

    If you place RGB images with colors that are out of the CMYK range, they will be implemented in the document CMYK if you turn on preview of overlay/separation or if a page has any transparent object and your transparencies fusion space is CMYK.

    But what you describe seems more random, so you can try to reset your preferences and trashing your cache of InDesign folder
