Something a little different from usual. I’ve been working on setting up my new Mac Pro. It’s actually not so noticeable in the picture since it’s so small (which I like). But man, that thing packs a punch.

I’m doing a lot more heavy production work with my podcast and shooting and editing my weekly video show, and my old iMac was just beach balls all dayโ€”no good. It was time to step it up and get a machine that doesn’t have to think about what I need it to do.

Wow, does this thing deliver. I’m a power user, so I have a dozen+ items that I absolutely have to have in my startup. It was taking minutes to boot on my old machine. Now (with the same exact configuration), I enter my password and everything is fully loaded by the time I count to 2. Apps open in even less time. Amazing.

Anyway, thought I’d nerd out about the details for those interested.
