MacBook Pro question
« on: November 12, 2018, 09:23:49 pm »

I am hoping to get some guidance on a MacBook Pro for use with Hasselblad H6D-100C.  Will the system below work well with the Hasselblad?
Thanks,
Greg

I'm on a 2017 MBP with an i7 and 16gb of RAM and things are fine even stitching the -100c files.  What software are you using?  Are you looking for the absolute fastest without any other reference point?  Only thing I'd check on is what external accessories you'll need to upgrade or adapt to USB-C, and how your storage is holding up.  512gb isn't much space, I'd recommend the larger NVMe over the i9 at this point.

B&H has my 2017 on sale right now (3.1ghz i7, 16gb RAM, 512gb NVMe, AMD 560 4gb) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/dealZone.jsp - but it ends in 22 hours.

I'm on a late 2016 Macbook Pro with the 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 and 16GB of RAM. It's no slouch when processing Fuji GFX files. And we spent more than $4000 on it.

The system you posted, with 32GB of RAM and the i9 processor, should be quite usable. And, really, if you need a Mac and need a laptop, it's the only choice, right? :)
