I know she uses Photoshop and probably Lightroom since she was using a PC. I know she off loads files to external drives...I guess Voyager is best as Thunderbolt drives are pricey. A USB 3 hub is probably needed. I got one from Apple - Belkin when I thought I was buying an iMac..but it is USB 2. I have to find out if she uses a router and if she could spring for a Time Capsule which would give her a dedicated back up, although I would recommend a clone too.

I told her to go to the Apple Store to have a look see, but to buy the computer from online Apple Store or call the Business Store (and they can also help with advice - if she gets a good sales person) I will be happy to help her configure her Mac.

I just hope this new skinny iMac is going to be reliable. I never like to buy anything that new until I hear how wonderful it is!
