I'm expecting this configuration of iMac to last me a lot of years. I went for the top of the range not including the eye Mac Pro which is not quite out yet. I could have taken one more step with a 2 TB SSD but the price of it made my eyes bleed. I will be hanging a thunderbolt spinning drive off the back as well as a USB drive of the same size to backup the thunderbolt drive. I'm not going to be short of space for my stuff.

I think I'll be setting it up as a new installation and not using migration assistant. Migration assistant does make it easy but at the moment I'm running from an external thunderbolt connected SSD. Be able to consolidate some of the main storage items onto the internal drive. When high Sierra comes along in the autumn it will be much easier to do the operating system update.

The iMac is finally on its way! It started its journey in Cork in Ireland and yesterday arrived in Dublin. The UPS scan late at night indicated it was leaving Dublin but we just don't know where yet. I'm hoping it's heading directly to Barcelona.

Ordered a 2017 iMac - It is on its way to me now. It left Cork in Ireland and ended up in Dublin last night. I saw a departure scan reported but no idea where it was heading next. I'm hoping it is direct to Barcelona, but it could go to another distribution hub to hop towards me. Not supposed to arrive until Thursday but that seems a bit pessimistic to me.

Had a day out in Barcelona with my youngest son and his girlfriend dropped by the Apple store on the way through Passeig de Gracia.

Churches are daft for what people do in them but the architecture is amazing.
