    Avid supported imac config

    Hello, 

    There is maybe already an answer to this somewhere but I haven't found it and would really appreciate some feedback.

    I need to get a new imac (not the expensive pro model, but a modest little imac).  This one is on sale, but is not listed as an Avid supported model.  Could anybody tell me if there's a chance it could be approved for Avid MC?

    21.5 inches, 4K, Intel Core i7, quad core, 3.6 GHz, RAM 16 Go DDR4, Fusion Drive, GPU: AMD

    It's the GPU I'm not sure about.  Thanks for any advice.

    Re: Avid supported imac config

    While keeping in mind that it's not an approved system, I'd say it's probably 100% that it would work fine. With 16GB RAM you won't be able to go crazy but I often cut on my old laptop from 5 years ago and it works really really well.
