 Sounds like it's time to update that old iMac Joe. The one you are using obviously isn't up to specs.  :sarcasm:

You already wanted SSD.

Yeah now I have to figure out a way to get them to buy it for me. The bigger issue though is the damn glass on these 27" 5K iMacs can't just be removed with suction cups. You have to have a special tool that looks a bit like a guitar pic to cut through the seal and if you cut in too far...well you just made your fancy iMac into a doorstop. Oops! Also you have to buy the SSD HD kit from OWC because you can't just get any old SSD and put in there. Uggggh!

Now if I can get the internet companies to run a fiber line to the shop, I'll be a happy camper.

And Tracy, listen to Joe. Upgrading in prepress can be a headache. I still don't think Sierra maintains as solid of network connections as older OSs. I have a 09 iMac with Snow Leopard that stays connected to all other machines with no hiccups... Sierra is not good at maintaining connections, even using things like Samba. I like it overall, but I do have the old workstation to lean on, if the new one gets touchy. If I didn't have a backup workstation, I would've been a lot slower to upgrade. 

I might do High Sierra next year and will do it on the MBP first, before the production machine. Press crews don't understand waiting for plates because of computer upgrade problems... gotta keep the wheels a turnin'

I have 1 Fusion and 1 HDD?
Hope this doesn't affect me >:(

If you choose to install High Sierra it will just use the old Mac OS file system. (as long as you didn't install the High Sierra beta on it first)
I haven't installed regular Sierra yet Boss wouldn't update my XMF license this year, so I won't install any OS till he gets me my license again. (for upgrades) or else you could come over and hold my hand :laugh:

On my way... :rotf:  :evil:

You're more than likely not missing anything with Sierra and even I would be leery of installing High Sierra on my work machine. Pretty sure I will at home but not at work until I'm sure everything will work.

And now Ear has me wanting an SSD! :P

Gotcha. Compromise is lame. :rotf: 

I found a refurb with a 512 gb SSD... it does get full relatively fast, but I back up to a multi-TB, partitioned USB-C external. But I'm glad I went with the faster flash drive, over larger and slower.

Well I've been married for 38 years so I'm well versed in it. :wife:

I haven't killed any women, but I have force-quit all processes and restarted a couple times.  :rotf:
