Greetings mac users, my first post after weeks of lurking! I've been offered an almost brand new (maybe 1 month usage) 12Core 2010 that was bought like 1 month before WWDC 2012 (2,9 GHz + 6 gigs + 5870 + 1TB drive) at almost 4,400k euros. I would have upgraded ram immediately to 16/24 and put a SSD drive so that makes an additional 500/600 euros, bumping it up to 5k. I was tempted to buy it, then i saw the old revision about 6 vs 8 vs 12 cores and i thought that a 6cores 3,33 Ghz with a OWC and a truckload of RAM (and the 5870) would have been a better choice (and a cheaper one, considering the rent option) for what i do. Main use: Photoshop / Illustrator / InDesign - with pretty much RARE use of Premiere and AE. I don't recall CS6 being optimized THAT much for PS/AI/ID so i'm not really sure i'm going to use all cores at the same time. I plan to sell it maybe in 2 years (with an additional 12 months of warranty)... Question is: did i make the right choice? Thanks for your time answering!
