I have blogged, lectured and argued for many years that a camera is nothing more than a tool that solves a given photographer’s problem. A camera brand is not a symbol of loyalty to one kind of photography, nor is it some kind of credential for membership in some kind of “club.” The sooner each photographer starts to figure out what their particular challenges are, and which camera works for them to resolve those challenges (regardless of brand), the sooner they will start making the kind of photographs they want. Recent experience has taught me that I need to start talking the same way about the laptop computers that photographers use for digital image processing.
In the age of tablet computers and intelligent telephones, you may not think a refresh to a line of desktop machines would create much buzz, but to the power users that you find at B&H, the new Thunderbolt-equipped quad-core Apple iMacs are electrifying. You can't bust one out on an airplane and consume high-def video on your folding tray table, but back at your workspace you can use one to produce high-end content like never before.
Psst! We're going to let you in on a little secret that we want you to tell everyone about. Here at B&H, we have a Computer Services Center (CSC). It is staffed by a crack team of specialists able to accomplish a multitude of tasks, and they are more than happy to answer customers' questions. Take a look at our interview with them, after the jump.

Here's the situation: you buy a brand new Mac with an empty 500GB hard drive. Your old computer has a smaller hard drive, but it's completely full and not very organized. You can use software that will transplant the chaotic mess from your old drive directly into your new computer, or you can take your time and manually move files over, organizing as you go. In this post I'll share some tips on how you can turn a new leaf when you get a new computer.
