Ahhh got you now, that is an odd decision!

Speaking of plug-ins, I really need to put some time aside to work out where all mine went in PS. I had all the nik collection and raya pro and they have all disappeared from the UI and the menus

I may have misspoken about m1 support in LRC. It looks like only the plugins-neutered version of PS that currently has native m1 support with Adobe apps. I’m confident that this will all get sorted out in the not-distant future, so not very worried about it.

Buy a PC...and with the money you saved...buy a new lens. The MicroCenter machine I bought was $1500...a comparable Dell was over $4k and a MAC was over $5k...

I edit 4k video without proxies...no problem.

Looks like you’ve not looked at the m1 mac mini prices.

I have. Same issue. That whole 2.4ghz band gets disrupted by anything near the mac mini when HDDs are hooked up. Pretty annoying. SSD's work fine, but unless you want to spend lens level money on storage, it's not practical to store a whole lot on SSD's right now.

That really interesting, is this issue specific to spinning disks hooked up vis USB? I have a intel model mac mini with 4 HD in a thunderbolt enclosure basically glued to the side of my mini and I have never had issues with Bluetooth devices, the enclosure however is hooked up to the mini via thunderbolt.

Yep pricing is good. The highest spec iMac M1 is £1699 in the uk. I easily spent that for my i9 intel build including the screen and I don’t even have that expensive a video card

For comparison the GM 35 retails at £1500

It's an actual thunderbolt 3 enclosure? I may need to try that out. My understanding is that the issue is with the usb 3 signal causing interference with 2.4ghz wireless signals but I think native usb c or thunderbolt devices should be fine.

OK, that’s a serious flaw. I’ll keep looking at a windows-based options. Thanks for calling this out!

My current workflow is I do all my projects entirely on an ssd and then archive to my Drobos (HDDs) when done. So, maybe I’d be ok?

That's what I do, but merely connecting my HDD's to the mac mini screws the bluetooth up. If I want to use bluetooth, I have to disconnect the drives completely.

Yes, Akitio Thunderbolt 3 enclosure. I actually had two enclosures connected to my Mini at one point but I've reduced it down to one now.

well, I don't think they had been released yet when I bought my computer...and I was looking at desktop computers, not a Mac Mini. But still...

the top of the line that I can find, is $1600. That is an 8 Core Cpu, 8 Core GPU, 16GB of Ram, 2TB harddrive...sounds good for photo editing, and would probably be just fine with that. But I bet it suffers when it comes to video. I have an AMD Ryzen 12 Core, 64 GB memory and an 8 GB GPU, It also came with a 2TB M.2 hard drive...and is fully upgradable and expandable. For less.

Apple are cool products, I get it, I shelled out for my wife to have a MacBook AIR for Christmas...she loves it...but you are stuck with what you get, good luck fixing anything or upgrading anything.

And a photo...surprised the wife actually liked it...working on updating the artwork on the walls, so combing through the archives coming up with options.
SR LE, base of 10 Seconds with the FH 10 Stop, and then 16 exposures IIRC. I need to write this crap down.

Not trying to have a Mac vs pc argument here :-P (I use both), but just on the video comment, you would be surprised. My 2018 iPad Pro with A12X Bionic handles everything I throw at it (up to 4K) no problem and these M1 chips are a step ahead again. It wasn’t available when I built my editing pc though so now I edit photos on my i9 intel and edit video on my iPad Pro
