Hey all- I was thinking of upgrading my 08 mac pro. 2x2.8 Quad with the new MBP 2.7 i7... I'm trying to figure out if I went from 8 down to 4... if it would benefit or hinder me. I know that not all programs are designed to make full use of all available cores, but my biggest concern is with Final Cut and After Effects.... since I use them for a living. The only thing I'm loosing is 4 cores. I still gain more Ram and faster data speeds with flash memory and thunderbolt raid, trumping the Mac Pro in several areas. Plus I then gain mobility away from my desk to a location video shoot for work. Your thoughts are much appreciated.
