Guys I NEED YOUR HELP! I'll be buying a mac later on this month or probably the next one. I'm between the iMac 24in screen display or the macbook pro 15in screen display. I'm going to be using it for graphic design using programs such as photoshop, indesign, illustrators... however recently I've been getting into video editing and 3d animation using programs such as adobe premier and Maya 8. At this point my biggest concern is that all these programs run well in my new mac. Ok these are my two choices Imac 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB memory 320GB hard drive1 8x double-layer SuperDrive ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory $1,699.00 (student discount) or Macbook pro 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1440 x 900 resolution 2GB memory 120GB hard drive1 8x double-layer SuperDrive NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics with 128MB SDRAM $1,799.00(student discount) The macbook pro has a slower processor however it seems to have a better graphic card and more ram memory. My question is: Is the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics with 128MB SDRAM same or better than the ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory graphic card from the imac? which computer do you think will be the best choice? I am not worry to much about portability, i just need to get the computer that will give me the best performance within my 2,000 dollar budget. I will love to have the 24in screen display but if the macbook pro will give the best performance i will go for it.
