I am debating whether to get: 27 inch i7 iMac Upcoming 15" or 17" Macbook Pro revisions Upcoming Mac Pro revision Use: SketchUp (with Plugins Vray & Podium), Modo (learning), Adobe CS4, Autocad & 3D Max (PC) I hate Boot Camp because I need to have access to OSX so I use VMware Fusion. I would prefer, if possible, to have a computer that could render quickly in a virtual machine (3d max). I am a student, so I am not immediately going to max out the power of the machine, but I am quickly learning how to use all of the above programs and want them to run perfect. I'm looking for value over a long term. The 27" i7 seems like the best choice at this very moment, but a Macbook Pro with quad core capabilities sounds even better. A Mac Pro sounds good over the long term since I can upgrade myself. Thanks for any advice!
