Rating: 5/5 UsedMacProBuyer November 22, 2014 I've been wanting one of these Mac Pros for years. This has become my #1 Mac. I use it primarily for sound production with Logic Pro and Reaper. With 16GB or RAM and the SSD, I can do a lot of audio tracks and not experience slow down in recording. mixing and mastering. I own a 2010 iMac with 12GB, a 2012 Mac Mini with 8GB and a 1TB fusion drive, and a 2007 Macbook Pro too, but this baby came 3TB of disk plus the SSD. It now has another 3TB disk so CarbonCopy Cloner can do thrice weekly disk clones.
