Jeff Harmon talks about a few changes to the show with some consolidation to a single Improve Photography podcast feed and a single Facebook group and then answers a question from listener Katie Shipley who asked:

“I had just finished listening to the podcast and taking notes on what to look for when buying a new computer when Apple announced the new iMacs last week. Now I am confused on which one is best. I think the iMac Pro is out of my price range so I need to stick with an iMac. I would love suggestions on what to buy to get the best performance in LR and PS. The top of my budget is $2000 but would love to not spend that much if I can get great performance for less”

Jeff recommends the base level 27″ iMac with upgrades of 256GB SSD and 16GB of memory that comes in slightly over budget at $2,100 before taxes.  If the $2,000 budget is more hard than that then the mid-level 21.5″ iMac with upgrades to a Core i7 CPU, 256GB SSD, and 16GB of memory brings the price in at right on $2,000 but leaves not room for taxes in the budget.  If that is still a problem then go with the Core i5 CPU and the 256GB SSD and 16GB RAM which comes to $1,700 and should mean with taxes the computer will come in under budget.
