    Worth it

    I debated for a few years on whether to switch from PC to Apple, wish I would have done it before now. The transition from PC was seamless, my FireStudio Mobile fired right up using the Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter and the Studio One 2 and hardware are compatible with the recent OS X Yosemite. Glad I finally made the switch.

    Nice solution on a budget

    If your on a budget but want the quality of Apple in your studio, you can't go wrong with this computer. I've been running this exact model for over a year now. Other then the occasional lag when writing in extreme automation in my daw for a project, this computer has not failed me.

    I run the 2.7 Ghz i5 processor and have not had any issues with cpu spikes or running out of CPU power. I've run close to a 40 track session, some audio, some midi, with some pretty heavy plug-ins during the mix and still have yet to max out the cpu.

    Bottom line, this system works and is more then enough for the average home studio user trying to produce their own music. It's a little more pricey then some PC with some of the same specs, but you don't get the issues associated with Windows or the PC platform, which is why I finally went with a Mac. I don't regret purchasing this and will never own another PC or windows based computer.

    As for longevity, I suspect this computer will handle most of my production needs for the next 4-5 years until I'll have to upgrade due to technology changes in the industry. Untill then, I'll be happily producing on this great machine.
