Hi Guys,

It's been a while since I last posted anything. I am thinking about upgrading my current mac (imac 27 inch late 2013, 3.5ghz intel core i7, 16gb 1600 mhz ddr3 with nvidia geforfce gtx 780m 4096mb)

I have noticed since upgrading to skp2019 that performance is a little slower, layout is slower and now im using more plugins like vray i am seeing slow render speeds and Vray crashes sketchup if i try and work fast.

the new imac pros coming on to the market say they have 18 cores and amazing graphics cards etc but I don't really know anything about computers in this way. It all goes over my head im afraid. I don't want to overspend on a top of the line machine if it makes no difference to how sketchup runs. can anyone give me any info or advice on whether its worth getting a top of the line all bells and whistles or if its pointless as sketchup only works with this that an the other so just go with this set up... hope that makes sense.

I should point out I work as a set designer in the film industry and often my models can get to over 100mb, they start slowing up and becoming hard to work with at 90mb and above. check my instagram to see the sort of models i produce heres a link
