    Dave Lee says its a overpriced PC/Mac.
    It thermal throttled to 95C in thin design @Papusan How do you feel if you got this for free from Apple asking you to recommend it as a greatest product ever released? What'll be your answer. Will you show your 7700K @5GHz kills their products any time and any day until 2019.
    Comparing Apple, AW did a fine job using TR Chips.
    @Mr. Fox Can you optimise this iMac Crow to surpass its performance numbers quoted by Apple Inc.?

    I don't know. Hard to say. But, I can easily say that I don't really care to know. There are a few things I have no place in my life for accommodation, and a Mac is one of them. Might as well just drink the Windoze OS X Kool-Aid if going there is within the realm of remote possibilities.

    You just edited the post.
    I figured you would use "A-Kool AID" or something similar. With this, I will limit exposure to Apple Macs. I think Tim Cook uses a Dell XPS or similar or even MS SB Pro or Book 2 because MBP throttles quickly and on Windows you can use TS to limit throttling.

    Yup. I'm pretty predictable, but that's good because my position is seldom vague or unclear.

    If someone actually spends money on this thing, there are more things he/she should worry about instead of the computer.


    Mainly mental health.

    LOL. I have to agree. I am not a Dave2D fan, since he is a BGA turdbook fanboy, but even he got it right in summing things up. Huge waste of money on something not so great... extremely poor value.

    14k USD so they can render slower than a quadcore I7. Seems legit.
