Thanks Darryl! Will my Lacie get bus power? Not a deal breaker, cos it has the usb3 connector as well ... PLEASE let me know about your new 8 core 2019 i9 MacBook Pro. Especially regarding heat and fan noise. Money's tight. I could do an iMac i9 8 core. MAYBE an iMac Pro, (32gb ram from the refurb site. Don't think I could swing 64gb). So if you come back with good news, maybe I can run with just the MacBook Pro. See my situation? An iMac of some sort, and an older (cheaper) macbook pro for when I'm on the road. OR just a maxed out MacBook Pro... i9 8 core...IF it doesn't fry eggs, and IF the fans don't have it flying around the room. But like I said ... I'd need that UAD bus powered arrow, and some sort of bus powered hub for on the road, to let me get at least an iLok and maybe another external drive on there.
