First: I think an intel mac is a good buy, especially at that price, I never said it wasn't.
Second: I am on record in other threads defending buying intel macs now IF you have a need for bootcamp, the virtualizations or for software you don't think will make the transition.
Third: My post above clearly states that the sale is 'making it hard for me not to buy one now'. Why would I do that if I didn't think it was a good deal?
For the record: I planned on buying a 16" recently when my mbp came back from its 3rd butterfly keyboard replacement but then the ARM announcement happened and it was made clear the transition would be happening faster than I thought it would so I decided to try and make my 2017 last until I can buy an ARM.
I would even say an Intel Mac is a better option for professionals, specially Engineers and people in computational fields.
I am excited to see what the Arm Macs can bring in terms of battery life, efficiency and cross-compatibility with iOS, but I don’t think they will mop the floor with existing machines. Latest reading suggest they won’t even have dedicated graphics cards, all the processing power will come from a single SoC.
Just curious, how many photos approx. would 5TB be, over 100k ?
