Paul Stamatiou’s 32,000+ word guide to building a PC specifically for Lightroom performance is something to behold. There are entire blog posts and guides in here, all mashed together to form one piece which will take you an entire evening — and a few glasses of wine — to read.

I have two simple questions for Paul:

  1. Is this $6,000+ PC worth the time and effort to build, when only a few minutes are saved in the end?
  2. Now that the iMac Pro has been released (and at a cheaper price than his custom rig), is it smarter to buy the latest all-in-one from Apple?

The iMac Pro is a lot better looking, if you ask me.
