Does anyone else here post on the Apple groups?

I don't see where anyone is deciding against the iMac Pro because of
this - why the alarmist header?

That said, as a former Apple service manager I was a little, ah,
surprised by how automated product setup has become. In the last week I
set up an iPad and the new 4k Apple TV - much of the setup is simply
holding another of your Apple devices NEAR the new one, so settings can
be siphoned off...

The OP is a proven troll.

Thank you.

I simply couldn't justify spending just a fraction under £5000 for the
new iMac Pro so I went ahead and bought the top-of-the-range 'ordinary'
iMac machine .....

27-inch iMac 5K - 3.8Ghz Processor / 2TB Fusion Drive
3.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor
Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz
8GB 2400MHz memory, configurable up to 64GB
2TB Fusion Drive
Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB video memory
Two Thunderbolt 3 ports
Retina 5K 5120x2880 P3 display

=

It's magically fast compared to my 2008 machine! ;-)

My new machine was VERY easy to get 'up and running'! :-)
