Mac Pro laptop is plenty enough for me.

And MacBook Pros can drive a larger monitor when/if needed.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.

I am also a fan on the MAC platform. I have my original 24'' IMac (first gen) still going strong, and also use a "late 2012 27" IMac with i7 3.4 GHz, and loaded with 32 GB ram. Recently upgraded the OS from Lion to El Capitan, and everything went flawless, and the Epson printer, scanners behaved perfectly with no issues. I do not believe MACs are over priced as some suggest. They work, they work well, and generally for a very long time without the slow down issues often seen in a PC. My son is a PC fan, makes his living doing coding and programming, and he says the MACs are very stable and enjoys writing code with the MACs. The MACS are , for the money cost effective, given that they do not need replacing very often. My 2009 I Mac runs as good as the day I purchased it. I was able to easily upgrade the RAM (easy on earlier models). I can count on two fingers the times that the computer "crashed", which was nothing more than a restart.

The 848 has scsi and firewire, so that's no problem with a new computer/system.
You're correct; I misspoke/typed. Our Imacon is connected via Firewire rather than SCSI.
