    A new computer is a wonderful thing. With my new laptop last year I went from taking 90 seconds to process a single RAW file in DPP to about 12 secs. It's a similar spec to your iMac, excluding the screen of course!

    The only reason I had timings for the old iMac was because I changed an HD to an SSD, so I timed various functions before and after the SSD was fitted.

    I nearly got caught out timing the new iMac. I expected Photoshop to load in around 10 seconds, but it did it in three. In fact it may have been a bit sooner as I was a bit surprised how quick it loaded and I didn't press the stop button quick enough.

    Next job is to upgrade the RAM. I ordered it with 16GB, two sticks of 8GB DDR4. With four RAM slots available, I could have ordered another two sticks of 8GB, giving 32GB in total, but that would have added another 540 to the price. If I get the RAM from Crucial, two times 8GB will cost me 166.

    My previous iMac had 4GB DDR2 and originally came with 2GB and was only designed for a maximum of 4GB.
