    hi there,

    am planning to buy a mac pro 8 core and a mac display as i use fcpx, after effects and photoshop quite heavily. has anyone something to share on this?
    i would like to remain with mac displays although new ones are not getting released. can anyone suggest which one would be ideal - mac thunderbolt display or mac cinema display?

    thanks in advance.
    with HIS blessings,

    I have a 6 core Mac Pro with both a Thunderbolt and Cinema Display. Both look the same to me. However, you can't plug the Cinema Display into the Thunderbolt display, it either needs to go directly into the computer, or another thunderbolt device. And since you are using FCP, if you get an HDMI display as your 3rd monitor, you can use 3 monitors for FCP without getting an adapter.
