You may have seen my previous post Houston, the Pencil has Landed where I wrote about my first few days with the new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.
I must confess: I’ve been holding back on writing about ALL my new gear. Being the end of the year, its a good time tax-wise to purchase or lease some new equipment. I made two other big acquisitions:
- MacBook Pro 15″ with Retina Screen – This MacBook Pro was upgraded with the discreet AMD video card and a full 16GB of RAM. This is the top-end configuration of the current MacBook Pro line. My 2012 MacBook Pro (the same one I dumped coffee into a while back) was unable to run #2 on this list, not to mention the Bluetooth had failed.
- Eizo 4K DCI 30″ display – This is even higher res than the 4K UHD displays you see around. DCI 4K has an extra 256 pixels in the horizontal dimension. This display also sports a 10 bit per channel data stream, allowing the Mac to send higher-fidelity color per pixel, which is then processed through the hardware calibration of the display itself.
