I haven't looked at benchmarks between the two. I just stated if there is more than one supplier, you should look at whether the lesser one is acceptable in performance. That way you can be sure of your purchase. Apple plays a lot of games with mini delays. After all this time they finally release a haswell model, and they obviously waited for the retina imac for whatever reason. I find it silly given that the price spread between the two, but anyway I wouldn't expect...
 15" is typically the most popular size with other brands, so I'm sure people would purchase one. Apple has been increasingly careful about spacing out their product lines by price range, so I really don't see that as likely. 
That's why you don't play the component lottery. You determine if the worst possible outcome is acceptable and only buy if that is the case. The mac pro is also a very expensive item, so it would not surprise me to see a higher flash budget there. 
 That's the thing. I looked at his quoted times, and a slow drive shouldn't cause things to take several minutes to launch. Disk Warrior might help a "little" if it takes too long to search, but other than  that it still sounds unusually problematic. Recent revisions of OSX really aren't built for HDDs given the frequency of disk access, but those results are far beyond what I would expect in slowdown. If everyone who bought the old 13" experienced this with Mountain Lion...
Some of those things often fail to run, such as cache clearing. I've seen many GB worth of caches at times, which could be tight on a smaller ssd. It can also guarantee that the cron scripts are actually run. The main thing that is really outdated is the prebinding implemented by it.
 Mine gets quite hot under load too, although I was never burnt by its surface. You can always look up whether any processes are hogging cpu via activity monitor. Just so you know, the Tjunction of that cpu is around 93C, so these internals can get quite hot. I am not suggesting they should be that hot all the time, and I don't know how well other components take it. 150 out of 500 is enough that it would not overwrite anything critical due to lack of space. It might be...
Well the thing about CMYK is that some well engineered displays can get reasonably close on colors that are within gamut. You'll still have a higher deviation for colors that are out of gamut, which encompass a lot of maroons and certain cyanish colors assuming we're talking about a high quality stock. That doesn't change anything about the monitor profile. The gamma slider shouldn't be on there at all, because the underlying hardware can't be tuned in a meaningful way in...
LUTs just work with what's available in terms of the underlying hardware. Even then you aren't going to reach such a gamma value without omitting certain encoded device values. Err.....where did you get that? This is a sticky subject, and I'm not that great at explaining it, but there's a lot more to it. What should be noted is that your display may not precisely match your target space in either scenario. The color preferences should be what matches the native response of...
 I figured they would be using the displayport 1.2 protocol internally anyway, as it has specified behavior for that circumstance. It seems that may not be the case. The only reason I can think of to go for 5K over 4K at this time is use the retina doubling, so each pixel is replaced by 4 pixels occupying the same approximate area. I thought they might do something like that with 4K using doubled dimensions from 1920x1200, but I've been wrong quite a bit lately. Part of...
Recent revisions of OSX don't seem to do well with HDDs for whatever reason, but I've only seen things slow down to that degree with very little free HDD space or firmware issues somewhere. How much free space do you have and what else is attached? Those are the most likely causes, with the next most likely being a bad ram upgrade. With a ram problem, you would probably see kernel panics  in addition to these symptoms. If it was something such as a logic board issue, one...
