Hi everyone I am in the market to buy a new Apple Desktop to replace my old 2010 27 inch iMac. So I 2 options. The 27 inch iMac or the Mac Pro. I never really have been interested in the mac pro until now, and while I don't think I need it, I would like to hear other members advice. The iMac fits well into my budget, but the mac pro pushes it a bit and if I buy that, I likely won't have enough to buy a Mac Laptop. Here are the things I would do on the computer: Use all of the pre-loaded apps Download More from the Mac App Store Store photos in iPhoto Edit photos in Aperture Make movies in iMovie and export movies Use iWork for making documents (Possibly edit photos in lightroom 5) For a configuration, I would get 27 inch iMac, 3.2GHz, 8 or 16GB of RAM, 512GB Flash, Ge Force GT 755M Mac Pro: $2999 model with 12 or 16GB of RAM, 512GB Flash, AMD 300, Thunderbolt display I am not a professional photographer but it is a huge hobby of mine. I also tend to have 1 app in full screen, but switch between them with about 2-3 running in the background.
