I have a new 2017 iMac, that when it arrives, I'll be using in a home office to edit videos for video production business on Final Cut Pro X (FCPX). The 2017 iMac will be hooked up the same as I currently have a late 2013 iMac.
Cox coax cable to router to Ethernet cable to Airport Extreme to Ethernet cable to back of iMac.
I want to use the 2017 iMac solely for video editing and hope to keep it clean and fast, but would like to keep the 2013 iMac downstairs as a home computer. What exactly would I need to make that happen. A second cable internet line and router for downstairs and home computer? Seems expensive
I don't want to lose any speed or power upstairs with FCPX and the new computer. This is paramount.
Would I be better upstairs in video production office to cable from Internet router straight to the back of iMac and not to Airport Extreme?
I'm sharing a house with 2 teenage daughters and a wife with iPhones, MacBooks, etc. I'm hoping someone will feel my pain and help out a newbie with this.
