Hi all, I'm slowly starting to get annoyed with my 2008 17" 2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro. Even though I have maxed out the memory at 6GB 667 MHz RAM and installed a 48GB Wintec SSD into the ExpressCard slot, when using Adobe CS5.5, the system seems to chug along somewhat. I have also maxed out the HD and would like more internal space rather than having to rely on external drives. So I think I need to upgrade, but I'd like to do it for as little as possible. Currently, I've been looking at 2nd hand Mac Pros (3.1 onwards), but have concerns over their longevity considering they are currently the bare minimum system requirement for Mountain Lion (I'm on 10.7.5 but would like to upgrade). Whilst I have had an iMac in the past and loved it, I'm not keen on the current models (I'd like a DVD drive and at least the option to upgrade the RAM). I'm not adverse to an older iMac, but which models would be a significant improvement on my current setup or on the 3.1 mac pro? My last option is to build myself a Hackintosh. Obviously I know the legal issues of doing this and whilst I have never built a computer before, I'm fairly confident I could do it. As I'm not buying new, the issue of the Hackintosh having no support isn't really an issue. Taking a 2nd hand Mac and hour away to my nearest Apple store and paying through the nose for repairs, isn't really appealing either. Currently I'm at a bit of a loss of what to do and would value the input of others. Will the 3.1. Mac Pros age well? How do 2009, 2010 and 2011 model iMac compare to the 3.1 Mac Pros? For £800 what would be better, a new Hackintosh (CustoMac Mini Deluxe) or a 2008 or 2009 Mac Pro? Any other thoughts would be welcome too. Thanks.
