    I thought you had got that sorted Stolzy. That’s not good. Lightroom and photoshop are what I’ll be using it for.

    Interesting reading your comments. Last night I stated thinking about windows machines and my mate came to over with his 13 inch XPs. It’s a little beauty for a lot less cash. I think I’ll have to look into this more. He has a 4K screen and it georgeous!

    The lack of connectivity on the new macs is a possible concern too.

    One thing, I installed highsierra on Rc’s 2011 mbp and Lightroom worked fine. I didn’t try photoshop. I’ll install them again and see if they work if that is of any help?

    For example this refurbished dell XPs

    Hope the link works. My friends on has the qhd higher quality screen and was a little more expensive. Leaving the operating system aside, it’s a serious computer.

    That would be cool, seems I'm not the only one having problems running PS on High Sierra.

    Lightroom works fine.
    There can only be 11 and I'm one.

    I’ll do that soon. Away from base until tomorrow night. I’ll try it then.

    Looking at buying a new Macbook Pro _ could use some tips

    Well for better or worse, I have bought a second hand, 2014 13 inch Mac book pro, with 8 gb of ram and a 256 gb ssd. Retina display. €550. I’m very happy with it and it has connectivity! SD card reader, usb, Ethernet port. It’s very clean. Lightroom runs fine on it. I’m yet to install photoshop but I will shortly.

    Just to put a foot note on this. This Mac is lightning fast. I'm sure a brand new on is much better but for my needs, it's perfect. It boots up in about thirty seconds. Maybe less. When booted up, it's ready to go. No background loading etc. Lightroom and photoshop don't even shrug at opening an 86 mb pano. Zooming in on same is problem free and seamless. Very happy.

    Thanks for your help with all your posts. :Aidan
