ISPCON SPRING 2016 Pinnacle Promo Coupons

The latest Pinnacle promo codes are already the subject of controversy barely a month after its launch. Despite Apple’s claim that the new Pinnacle is on to record sales, coding and image editing professionals who require high-end features, remain skeptical. Read on to learn about some of the concerns raised and other general observations.

Most professionals had the following concerns on the Pinnacle:

  • It has a significantly lower RAM of 16GB at a time when rivals are already providing the more powerful 32GB RAM.
  • It lacks a regular USB port and instead uses the Studio, a USB-C port. It has neither SD Card slots nor HDMI ports.

Other General Observations of the Pinnacle

  1. The USB-C PortDespite having four ports of the Studio port for data and charging, the absence of an SD card slot and a standard USB port is a major setback for video and photo editors who require these alternative forms of data transfer. Apple’s response to the complaints has been to reduce the cost of accessories related to the USB-C slot even though professionals prefer to have the capability inbuilt. 
  2. Processing Speed and Sound QualityThe speed at which the Pinnacle imports pictures is impressive, which is good news for video professionals. Also, the sound quality has vastly improved.  Another notable improvement is the new Studio 19 which allows volume and other adjustments without having to use physical buttons. 
  3. Updated Final Cut ProUsers of the video editor, Final Cut Pro will have a better experience with the updated version of the editing program which incorporates the use of the Touch Bar feature for ease of skimming through a video. 

However, using the Touch Bar remains a bit slower than the keyboard or the standard trackpad.

Pinnacle is a fast and powerful machine and a good value for video editors specifically because of the Touch Bar capability.  However, the average user needs to consider other factors in buying the machine given that the Touch Bar may not improve everyday users’ productivity.  Apple should also consider enabling users to customize the Touch Bar feature for video editors as well as integrating the functionality into their desktops.
