New to Mac, Logic pro and Logic studio

I am considering getting a software like Cakewalk on Mac, and friends mentioned to me Logic Pro,
But I see there is Logic pro and Logic studio, what are the differences between the two?

Logic Pro is the current version and it can only be purchased through the Mac App Store - more info here: http://www.apple.com/logicpro/

Not true. You can still purchase the physical version of Logic Studio 9 from the Apple Online Store.

Logic Studio is the package of apps (Logic Pro 9, MainStage 2, Soundtrack Pro 3), and Logic Pro is standalone. You should buy it in physical format IMO. There is likely to be an update in the next couple of months, and we don't know the upgrade path, and you could easily sell your physical, recoup the costs, and then buy the newest digital versions of the apps. Plus, it has some nice bonus stuff you might like that the digital version doesn't have.

Thanks for the correction, I didn't know you could still buy the disk version. But the app store version is only $200 and Mainstage is $40 from the app store. I already have an old version of SoundTrack Pro that came with Final Cut Studio but never really used it.

$260 sounds like a big premium to pay for the disk version, but the point is well taken that you can sell the disks but not the app store version.

The first question I have is "Why not use Garage Band?" I'm not saying to use it but your answer will tell us a lot.

Try it for a while. The good thing is that GB projects can be opened in Logic so you do not loose any work. But working in GB is free because yu already have it on your Mac. While using it write down any annoying limitations. Then list in hand you can choose your upgrade path.

What DAW(s) are you familiar with?

fwiw, i've run cakewalk with some sequences I had from 1997-1999 perfectly well in winXP parallels - i was blown away it could even play.

at the very least, i was able to .wav out each track so I could work with the old info.

Whether it could still be used reliably or without all the modern tools we're used to now... that's up to you. Sometimes limitations breed creativity.

Since the Mac App Store (MAS) is only available in 10.6.6 and later, it is probably safe to say, it only works on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
