Mac Setup: A Pro Home Recording Studio
The new Macs include USB 2 ports, but they have been rendered problematic for existing interfaces due to the T2 chip. The solution, if what I'm reading is accurate, needs to come from Apple. Again, I would very much like to be told that I'm wrong about this as my 9 year old iMac is, well, 9 years old. I'm waiting for the iMac line to be refreshed at which point I plan to purchase one. I don't, however, wish to replace the RME box.
Should You Buy A Mac?
Assuming that the new iMacs continue to have USB connectivity, these interfaces should still function. Now, if Apple announced that their new hardware made USB interfaces obsolete I'd be forced to move on. But this issue doesn't appear to be a design choice by Apple, but rather an unanticipated error on their part.

Thanks everyone for your time! He uses G5s, PCs and a mac mini.
He told me that the most powerful computer at his studio is the mini. He runs PT, Logic, Gigastudio slaves, and a video slave.
$799 Mac mini review: Impressive multi-core performance from Apple’s most affordable Mac
I think the mini runs logic. In Logic he uses hundreds of midi tracks but I don't think any audio because he records all his stems in PT.
His mini is old so new ones will work considerably better. IMO my old computer has lower specs than the new minis and I managed to work with it. I had track projects and it handled it fine. My latency was at around 20 ms. Lower could cause problems on it but even on my current computer equivalent to the mac pros that got replaced by the new one in can have glitches with lower than 20 ms when I work with over tracks.
How to Choose the Best Mac for Music Production
I assume that you are talking about getting one new? Just looking on the Apple store: Any option will work great - but the 2.
If you can't afford this one - the bottom model will also have no problems. The only teeny problem you'll have is getting Komplete 9 loaded. The mini doesn't have an optical drive. I think you might be able to connect the mini to your current laptop and load Komplete via the laptop's drive It seems a bit over-priced on the configuration screen for these things The HD is also simple minimum tools - ie, add a new second HD.

Andy :beamup:. What's a good amount of RAM for running a fair number of plug ins?
It's more than adequate for my needs. I use the latest Logic, an old MoTU and an AMT8 Occasional issues with the 32bit plugin bridge crashing when running in 64bit mode but handles everything I throw at it.
