I am just saying as a business owner, I would rather get a loan for my company than deal with custom PCs.I dont think you're wrong - but these are export and render machines only, I forgot to mention that - we're less hamstrung if one goes down. I also forgot to mention that we *have* been using an i9 9900 and a Radeon 7 for the last 6 months with no issue. I plan on this getting us through a shorter stint and then I'll re-evaluate.
Even the $2200 builds we have are well out-performing the iMac Pros.
Time is more important than saving money. And time is money in the end.
Is the new Mac Pro "overpriced"? Somewhat, if you are a small production house. But these machines are supposed to last for many years and there is residual value to them and they pay for themselves in the long run.
You can easily get a bunch of base Mac Pros and upgrade them over time. Throw in a Radeon VII and upgrade the CPU/RAM later.
My point being, I have spent hundreds of hours on this thing and see it more as a side hobby thats attached to my daily routines.
Will something go wrong with your machines? Undoubtedly. Will it happen today or tomorrow? Who knows.
