I'm working on a iMac (retina 5k, 27-inches from 2017) that runs on Mojave (10.14.6) and I'm still using Chief Architect X10.
Since everything works fine with this combination, I never felt the need to upgrade to more recent MAC operating system.
But now, I feel like I should go forward with upgrading my OS since I will be 4 years of upgrades behind with the release of Mac OS Ventura later this autumn.
So my big question is, will Chief Architect X10 keep working on those more recent OS?
I know that I should upgrade CA too, but the money is just not there since the pandemic. To upgrade to CA 14, I would need to also buy a new iMac to run it... and both purchases together would probably come close to 10,000$, with the exchange rate since I live in Canada.
So should I or shouldn't I, that IS the question.
1. YES, I have read Chief Architect's X14 migration guide.
But I want to dive deeper. I would love to know the way you prepare to move things over. Do you go through and clean up files? Do you move some files to an X13 folder that are no longer needed, but "just in case". What about your templates you have created for Layout? Do you clean up your library?
I know we all approach this differently. I have been using Chief Architect since Chief version 8. So, have done a lot of migrations, but always feel at times it could be done more neatly, cleaner.
Would love to hear your approach.
Hello, I need to purchase a new laptop that will run Chief Architect x12. I came across the MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 and thought it seems like a reasonable price for the specs. I am curious if anyone has experience with this laptop or a similar model. It's been a while since I purchased a laptop. I'm not very familiar with how NVMe hard drives work as opposed to a SSD+HDD setup.
Here is a link to the Amazon product listing > https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Leopard-10SFK-062-i7-10750H-RTX2070/dp/B085B3GFRL
I realize the topic of "what computer to buy" comes up frequently here so no need to remind me of that.
I need a new laptop much sooner than later. I've been researching and looking at all the options and frankly it's all starting to look the same. I know some brands are 'better' than others, but does it just come down to whether you prefer Chevy or Ford? What do I stay away from? I'm finding a 17" w/i7-10th gen and RTX 2070 Max that costs less than a 15.3" w/seemingly the same specs. I'd like to keep the cost under $1500 but can flex some; I need it to last a few years. Any advice for the weary and decision-frozen?
Thank you for your thoughts,
Hello- I'm looking to purchase a new laptop which I use for modeling w/ a 2nd screen. For meetings, I unplug and take it with me- so prefer a 17" monitor. I don't render images much at this point, but may begin to if the computer is capable. Any input regarding Intel i7 vs. i9 vs other processors would be much appreciated, as well for graphics card and RAM, for a max $2000 budget.
