Hey guys, Just wondering if you can give me some quick advice. I currently own a Macbook Pro 2.4ghz Intel i5 (use it with an external monitor, apple keyboard, and wireless logitech mouse), mainly for music/video production but now it's time for an upgrade since my work is expanding for upcoming summer projects. If I do buy a brand new mac pro right now, I plan on keeping it for 3-5 years then upgrade. I'm trying to keep a $3000 budget, but sometimes I can go overboard. Here are my options .. OPTION 1 - Wait until the next Mac Pro is released. Upgrade the ram/hd on my Macbook pro for now, $105 for adding 8gb ram and $120 for a 1TB Hard Drive. (Currently have 320gb hd and a Western Digital 2GB MyStudio external). So my cost of upgrade will $225. I have lot of work to do this summer, so if i wait for new Mac Pro release, it better be worth it. Could be months from now! OPTION 2 - Buy a new Mac Pro right now Brand New Mac Pro desktop (One 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" processor, 3GB (three 1GB) memory, 1TB hard drive, 18x double-layer SuperDrive, ATI Radeon HD 5770 120 with 1GB GDDR5) It retails for $2599 + Tax, but with a special corporate discount, I'm getting it for $2100 including tax. I plan on spending another $120 for a 2TB Caviar Green Hard Drive and $825 32gb OWC Memory Upgrade Kit. So my total for this beast I'll be spending $3045. OPTION 3 - Buy a used one, then upgrade after a 2 years. Used Apple Mac Pro (2.66GHz Intel Quad Core Xeon, 1GB DDR2 ECC Ram, 250GB SATA Hard Drive, 16x SuperDrive with double-layer support, GeForce 7300GT 256MB Ram). I can get this desktop for $800, and then I plan on spending another $120 for a 2TB Caviar Green Hard Drive and $825 32gb OWC Memory Upgrade Kit. So my total for this will be $1845. Let me know your thoughts, suggestions and any useful advice. Thanks!
