Hi guys Hi - I have always used a PC for recording and it's always been solid. I use a Mac at work and home for design. So I am going to get a new iMac 27" with Logic but I have heard lots of horror stories about stability and bugs. Latency issues. I am planning on the following set up can you tell me what your thoughts are it's already getting expensive as it is because I also have to buy my Apollo Twin.

I have a lot of sample based programs, and drums, Omnisphere, NI Komplete etc. GB's of it. So I will place the samples on a external HD.

  1. External USB3 for Samples.
  2. External USB3 for Songs/Audio.
  3. Is the 1TB Serial ATA ok.The flash drive is nice but $500.

3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz
16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X8GB
1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm - - - - - - Will this drive work ok? I know everyone says Flash Drive but that is $500 more. If the 1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm is ok I could put that $500 to 32GB RAM or 3.5 GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7. I heard there isn't a huge difference in speed may more RAM is better?
