I need some advice as I'm not sure what would be the best buy for me and my needs. I am an architecture student but also a designer and i wish to learn and do allot more motion & 3d this year (adobe ae, c4d, 3d max ect). I already use the creative suit but what to explore film and architectural apps. Would a 13" macbook pro be good enough for this kind of work. Options are: highest end 13' 2011 Macbook Pro (i7 8gb ram) + 24-30 monitor. or do put in another $1000 Higher end 27" Imac i7 Essentially do you think i would get by on the 13" even though it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card for my needs? I would like to add i only want to buy a 13" macbook i don't want anything larger.
