My new 27inch iMac i7 arrived on Tuesday (8 days ahead of schedule) with 8Gig ram, 1 Tb
Fusion Drive and a Firewire - Thunderbolt adapter.
I built it using my Time
Machine back-up with only a few minor issues around re-inserting activation codes etc. and
started up a DP8 project using my Saffire Pro 40 interface....and blow me ...it all worked
and has continued to work crash fee for 2 days.
I am finally uncrossing my
fingers...perhaps I am very lucky, but boy what a Christmas present
The iMac itself is of course stunning to look at and unfeasibly thin...and quiet. I
have not noticed any performance improvements yet (apart from bounce to disc which is
very rapid) as I have not put it under any load.
The screen is wonderful and
seems a little less reflective than my previous 6 year old iMac and the casing does not
get warm / hot at all even after hours of use.
What a great experience....but
isn't that what it should always be with a Mac ?
The only casualty of this whole experience was my copy of Bias Peak...which is basically
screwed!! A small price to pay I say!
