Well I finally pulled the trigger on a new Laptop. Adobe’s latest upgrades basically meant I could no longer use Lightroom or Photoshop.
The intention was to buy a cheap low end machine but with 16 Gb of ram but then Apple announced the new 16 inch. So yes, I am currently typing this on the new Apple MacBook Pro 16 inch model. I went with 1 Tb of SSD and 32 Gb of ram which should make it a good photography laptop.
