Like so many others, I was all set to buy a new Mac Pro on June 11th. My 2008 Mac Pro is showing its age running FCPX. It works fine for my other uses. I've placed an order for the Retina MBP with 16GB and 768SD. With a 3-4 week delay in shipping, I knew I could always cancel the order if I had to. Am I fooling myself thinking this will be a sufficient upgrade from my Mac Pro for video editing? I'm also considering the Mac Pro 6 core with the HD 5870 or the stock 12 core 2.4GHz. With either one, I would be upgrading to at least 24GB of non Apple ram. Here is my current configuration: Mac Pro 3.1 8 core 2.8GHz 18GB ram GeForce 8800 GT ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 2TB software RAID 2TB WD 30" Cinema Display 22" LG Display 23" Acer Display with HDMI Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
