Yesterday, while I was shooting a wedding, my new iMac arrived! Finally I'll have the processing power to whip through my post-wedding workflow!! As much as I loved my old Mac, it just couldn't keep up anymore. The slow processor and minimal RAM couldn't handle the 4GB-10GB of photos that I shoot in one day. If you think about it, the RAW image files I'm working with weren't even invented when my old processor was born!

This new computer is dedicated to all of my clients, who have encouraged me with their immense praise to continue pursuing my passion and who have supported me with awesome word of mouth business, allowing me to grow my business in a very competitive marketplace. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  1. You know, that's pretty much what we're still using! G4/400, with lots of external hard drives. Just upgraded RAM to 1.2 GB -- before last week it was 640.

    I feel you pain and am slightly jealous.

  2. I had a bunch of external drives as well, but even they were slow moving because of the processing speed. I had to decide between upgrading my processor and RAM, or just buying a whole new thing. For the investment in future software developments, I went for the whole new shebang.

  3. Congrats Anne :) We can't wait to get our G5 as well...hopefully this year :) We have a 4 year old Mac 15 inch Powerbook, a mac mini with 23 inch display...and well, just need to upgrade! Sooo happy for you :)
