I've been an Apple user since the mid-90's, and an iMac user for over 10 years. I currently have an '08 top-spec (for its time) iMac 24", and have been (in)patiently waiting for the new iMacs to be released, with the intention that I'd be buying a fully loaded BTO 27" with the upgraded 3.4GHz i7 CPU and the NVIDIA 680MX 2GB GPU. But my circumstances have recently changed, which now has me considering that a fully specced MacBook Pro 15" might be a better option - namely due to me having to work remotely from home for a portion of the week, and in the office for the remainder of the week. Having a MacBook Pro would allow me to have all of my files and applications, and a familiar computer (once I'd get used to it), in the two places, and just plugging it into a display at each location. This is much more appealing than working on a PC (spit) at the office and on an iMac at home. My question is, in a nutshell, will the differences between the top-spec iMac and the top-spec Mcbook Pro be so gargantuous that its not even worth considering, despite the mobility benefits? I appreciate that both the CPU and GPU aren't comparable between the two, but could the advantages of the MacBook Pro's portability balance the drop in CPU/GPU from the iMac? My primary tools are the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator) and 3D modelling/rendering in Cinema 4D. There's a little FCP work thrown in there as well, occasionally, but that's only a fraction of the time in comparison to Photoshop/C4D. I guess I'm also asking if someone can advise me if the drop in GPU will greatly affect my 3D modelling, or does this utilise CPU more than GPU. Where will I notice the lower GPU performance most noticeably? And for rendering, will the lower CPU be hugely inferior, or just slightly? Hopefully you're still awake after this long description, and if so, hopefully you can advise me on the above? Many thanks.
