Although the unit is optimized for Adobe, if you are a non-Adobe power user, the machine would be just as fine. The customization of this unit offers a lot more for Adobe users, but doesn't take away from the needs of other software and set ups.If you are asking why you should buy an earlierversionof the Mac Pro, here are a few things to help you with your decision:
(1) To get the equivalent 12 core computer with 32GB of RAM and current specs, with the current trash bin style Mac Pro, you will have to pay at least 2.5 times as much, if not more.
(2) You also have much less flexibility in upgrading things and customizing the unit because the trash bin Mac Pro is very rigid and inflexible in its design. If you check under Amazon reviews, there is an extensive log of complaints about the trash bin version and the manylimitationsand problems it entails. This unit may be bulkier, but it does the job it was designed to do well. If you are tech savvy, you have an option to open the system and check what's under the hood, upgrade and install things on you own, something that is missed with subsequent release.
(3) This unit is still supported and serviced by Apple Genius Bar, often at no cost. It doesn't matter if it is under warranty or not. So, you can have peace of mind that if anything should go wrong, you wouldn't be out of luck and you can still maintain the system and get thebest of your investment for many years to come.
