John.. I was speaking of vid ram being more on the refurb.. albeit wit a slower card.
I am deliberating getting the refurb to save money...soooo... an SSD isn't really an option at this point. If I was going to do an SSD it would be an after market one on my MP at home. Tempting though... very tempting... Plus i can always do an external SSD boot later on via TB.
I am leaning towards the new one.
Anyone else have thoughts? Anyone? Bueller? Buelller? Reboot?
I was checking this out the other day.. Capture One was a 60 MB app and a memory hog 4 years ago at version 3.7.
Then they started adding functionality to it to compete with Aperture and LR. It went to 368 MB app in version 5. Now it's at 525 MB at version 6.0 I know app size isn't the issue here.. I'm just saying my 3+ year old laptop is ok for capturing... but trying to do much more is causing it to lag.
So.. this iMac wouldn't replace it completely... but I would use the laptop a LOT less... just on location shoots. Use the new iMac for all studio work.
Plus... this laptop is at max 4 GB ram. When I launch C1 and PS and Quark and a few others.. it gets eaten up quickly.
