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?

Fuck off, Linus. All the desperate monetization in the world won't change the fact that you're a bad person.

I'm just glad you were nice to Anthony on this video. You were mean to him in that networking one.

@PhantomThe problem is the iMac comes with it, and they charge extra to get rid of it and go only SSD. So I understand why they kept it for the video. Stupid Apple, no one wants spinning disk storage in 2019 for an all-in-one.

Grr why didn't you also compare the top of the line Mac Mini in this video?

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)

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.

Which episode was Anthony's first appearance?

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.

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.
