I finally bit the bullet and purchased a second-hand 2013 6-core Mac Pro with 512GB flash menory on eBay from a credible vendor. After weeks of perusing listings I got a pretty incredible deal - basically what I would have been willing to pay for the most basic quad core.

It's an incredible machine and sessions that were causing playback stops and cpu errors on my maxed out 17" 2010 MacBook Pro are a childs play. Gone are my days of printing/consolidating tracks for hours just to be able to finish mixes on big projects.

I know it's easy to get incredibly pessimistic about Apple sometimes (especially after too much time on tge forums), but if you're on the fence about the trashcan, I say go for it!
