I am considering replacing my windows pc with an iMac and would like to know if there are any known issues i.e. will the dongle work, will all drawing files open ok etc. I'm running ArchiCAD 12 with a USB dongle.
Thanks in advance
AC is great on an iMac .. you have nothing to worry about there. Some older models using ATI cards did have a graphics bug triggered by intensive GPU usage, but this was not an AC specific thing and is not a problem on any of the newer machines.
Thanks ejrolon, I read Ars every day yet somehow managed to miss that one.
The problem was 'fixed' in that Apple swapped to NVIDIA cards as the default graphics card. The problem with the ATI cards was not limited to iMacs .. my old firm had a whole batch of new Mac Pros suffering the same problem until we got the cards switched to NVIDIA. This must be pretty embarrassing for Apple to have the same problem again. I wonder why they even offer the ATI cards as an 'upgrade' option when they must know they have heat issues (surely they do some heavy stress testing internally).
