"The compact Serenity desktop system’s physical size is perfect for my work-space. The machine is whisper quiet. I was able to configure a machine that fully met my needs today while allowing for all the future growth. The machine was professionally assembled, packaged and arrived in pristine condition."

Lightroom Classic Workstation FAQ
I'm thinking of moving from Mac to PC. Can you help?
Absolutely! Over the years we have helped quite a few of our customer make the move from Mac to PC. In fact, it is a large enough number that we have a dedicated Need help moving from Mac to PC? page to answer some of the more common questions we receive.
Do any of your systems support Thunderbolt?
Unfortunately, our Lightroom Classic workstation is based around AMD's Ryzen platform which does not have certified Thunderbolt support. If you need Thunderbolt, email one of our sales representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (425) 458-0273 and we can help you configure a system that supports Thunderbolt.
How much faster will a new workstation be?
While a new system will certainly be faster, it is extremely difficult to say exactly what kind of performance gain you will see. A general rule of thumb is that for a similarly priced system, you should see about a 10-15% performance gain for every year that you have had your current system, although there has recently been significant performance gains in tasks like exporting and generating smart previews. However, if your current computer is missing features like an SSD storage drive then the apparent performance gain may be much higher.
I have a ton of storage drives. Do you have anything with more room?
We can certainly configure a more workstation with a larger drive capacity if that is what you need. We recommend contacting one of our consultants, or if you wish to configure one yourself, our Spirit platform is a great starting point.
I'm not sure what system hardware I should use. Help!
Depending on how much you want to dig into hardware and system specs, we have a couple different ways to help. First, we have a Hardware Recommendations page specifically for Lightroom Classic that goes over all the different major hardware components and why you would use one part over another. Alternatively, you can always contact one of our consultants and we can help you configure a system that is perfectly tailored for your workflow.
