Hi,

 

I'm planning a new build either based on a HP Z600 or a custom Gigabyte MicroATX build.

 

I have been using OS X since 10.1 on a lampshade iMac, I make my living on the Mac so whatever I build has to be reliable.

 

Currently I develop a custom web application which requires I run 2x Ubuntu VMs fulltime and then VMs for Windows to test IE compatibility as necessary. 

 

My MacBook Pro 13 does the job well, it has 16GB Crucial RAM upgrade and a 512GB Crucial MX100 SSD and I don't have any reason to upgrade it.. However as a backer of Elite Dangerous I also need a machine that can run a decent graphics card... I'm tempted to buy a Mac Pro 2010 model with dual Xeon X5650 and plenty of RAM but the cost difference between them and a similar HP Z600 would buy a lot of graphics card.

 

I'm tempted to either buy a HP Z600 or build a Gigabyte based system. I used to build PCs 20 odd years ago and I have a Lenovo T420 running Mavericks with Clover but it has a few glitches.

 

Baring in mind I make my living off the Mac can anyone tell me if their setup is really reliable enough to work on. I know the T420 has issues with the spinning beach ball that seems to be related to network activity, I don't really have time to mess about too much with the machine so I have left it, when it happens I have to reboot which is a minor inconvenience every couple of days.

 

However my work machine must be reliable, I can't accept any interruption to my workflow. I can spend a couple of days setting the thing up, but I need to to be reliable once it's working.

 

This is the build I am planning, spec is not fixed yet. I'd prefer a Xeon system over the i7 as the i7 has less cores, but I can live with it.

Can anyone here relate to this or offer any advice?

 

Thanks!

Hey There!

I'm Alessandro from Italy. I replaced my old HP laptop with an i7 Samsung for 150€ a great price for a great computer. I'd like to install Mac OS X Yosemite on it to rum my graphics and audio editing applications.

I hope to let it works!

Bye from now

 

All the best,

Alessandro
