Apple iMac for editing Arri footage

Recommended Posts

Greeting everyone.


I wonder if you guys can help me for getting the right iMac for editing Arri footage.

I own an Arri Alexa XT and a Codex's reader with USB cable.


There are some stores with used iMac's with very decent price tags and maybe you can tell me what specifications I should look for speedy editing.


I am aware of the USB port which comes with the new iMac's with Retina display, but thanks to an adapter I can use an older model to do the job.



I was thinking of an iMac 21.5" Core i5 2.7GHz, 1 TB HDD, 8 GB RAM.


Is that a prudent choice?


Thank you.
