I'm looking to get a little better system for what I do: Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X. I'd say i'm a moderate to heavy user in Logic (not a ton of plugins and software instruments, but I get some playback errors now and then). I'm a moderate Final Cut user (mostly editing my 5 minute Youtube videos, some Motion fx, but I will never have the need to make a feature film) My current computer: Early 2011 13" MacBook Pro 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB Crucial 1TB SSD It's been working fine, but I'm looking for a desktop configuration with more power, especially for the video editing stuff. I don't want to break the bank so a new MacPro is out. I'm thinking either a maxed out new Mac Mini, or a used 2012 Mac Pro. (I'm not into iMacs, i had one, and i don't like having it all-in-one. I'm leaning toward the old Mac Pro, because I still use a SuperDrive for burning stuff. But will it be a "step up"? Mac Mini's cap at 16gb RAM is a turnoff. I will definitely be putting a SSD in whatever computer I get. Any advice would be appreciated.
