Hello, I am in the process of buying a new iMac to support a design build construction company. I currently operate on a MacBook Pro Mid 2015 with the following specs:
- Processor: 2.5 GHz Quad Core Intel Core i7
- Memory: 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3
- Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2GB / Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
Overall, I have been pleased with the performance but there is some lag. I am looking to upgrade performance that better supports the Sketchup and Layout platforms. I currently hold a 2018 Sketchup Pro license. Specifically, I utilize the workflow developed by Nick Sonder and Matt Donley in the book “Sketchup & LayOut for Architecture”. Graphics are super important as well as speed. I am not great with hardware specs but can get a basic understanding given some tips. My overall budget for a new iMac is around $3k.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
