Need help from Computer people- Which system would you buy?
Here's the situation. I got myself a brand new 26 MP camera (the X-t3) and I intend not only to take and edit stills with it, but to move into video editing. Not anything special effects intense, mind you, just normal stuff, but it will require the use of a video editing suite. I will probably shoot omst of my stuff in 1080, but who knows. Maybe 4K is in the future.
I'm currently using an IMac from 2011, and a macbook air from 2015, and with the new RAW files these machines craaaaaaawl. I haven't even done any video editing, and I'm sure if I tried they would literally catch on fire.
So I'm going to need a new machine, but I can't splash out for a new Mac Pro.
Here's my options:
Option 1: New Mac mini Standard
3,6 GHz Quad‑Core Intel Core i3 Prozessor der 8. Generation 8 GB 2666 MHz DDR4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 128 GB SSD Speicher Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000BASE‑T Gigabit Ethernet mit RJ‑45 Anschluss)
Price: 899.00 Euros
Option 2: New Mac Mini with more bells and whistles
3,6 GHz Quad‑Core Intel Core i3 Prozessor der 8. Generation 32 GB 2666 MHz DDR4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 256 GB SSD Hard Drive Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000BASE‑T Gigabit Ethernet with RJ‑45 Connection)
Price: 1859.00 Euro
so the question with these two is, is the 32G and bigger hard drive worth 1000 Euros
But the waters are muddied by option 3, and oldie but goldie
Option 3: 2013 Model Mac Pro (the cylinder)
Processor: 3,0 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5 CPU E5-1680 v2
RAM: 64 GB ( 4 x 16 GB ) DDR3 ECC 1866 MHz
Hard Drive: 256 GB SSD Apple SSD SM0256F
Graphic Card: ( 2 x ) AMD FirePro D300 ( 2 GB ) VRAM mit HDMI und Thunderbolt Videoausgang
OS: macOS Mojave 10.14
Price: 2000.00 Euros
So this one is old, but looks, on paper at least, even better than the loaded Mac Mini.
I's used, but it comes with a 12 month warranty, from a dealer (via eBay, but it's a dealer ) Here's the link:
So which one would you buy?
