I do apologise that this is like the 10th iMac vs. ____ question this week, but I don't remember there being an iMac vs. mac pro question. I'm planning on getting a maxed out 21.5" iMac (i7, 16GB RAM, Fusion Drive) on student discount (I'm in the UK), and I estimate it'll be about £1,700, which is also the price of the lowest spec Mac Pro on student discount. Would the Mac Pro be much of a step up? Or is it kinda old now? It misses Thunderbolt, something which is nearly a dealbreaker IMO. Will there be Thunderbolt PCIe cards soon? I'm gonna do a decent amount of video editing, decent amount of VFX along with that, Photoshop work etc. etc. The iMac should be able to handle my needs, but I've wanted a Mac Pro for ages (I've been saving for a while, then my iMac broke down ), would really like to be able to add/remove internal hard drives, get PCIe stuff, change the processor (This is possible), get a Blu-ray drive. OR, would it be better to get the iMac now, sell it when the apparent 2013 Mac Pro comes out? I just hope the next Mac Pro gives you the same upgradability. By then I'm sure I'll have the money to pay the difference.
