Hey everyone, The time has come for me to join the mac pro family! It will have multiple uses, and the following are some of the heaviest: Audio Recording (Logic, Pro Tools, Reason), HD Video Editing (Final Cut), and Image Editing (Photoshop). I was hoping you guys could help me with a few questions: 1. Where to buy? Can someone mention a few of the pros and cons of buying online at Apple.com, going to an Apple store, or a non-Apple store? Price differences? Warranty options? Delivery? Customization? 2. Processor - I've decided on 8-core, though I'm not sure whether to go with the 2.26, 2.66, or 2.93 configuration. Right now I'm leaning towards 2.66, as I hear that it's difficult to see much of a difference between 2.66 and 2.93 in practical application. Thoughts? Maybe I should think ahead when Snow Leopard comes and the processing power of 2.93 will be more apparent? Of course money is a big factor here... 3. Memory - RAM is cheaper when not bought from Apple and I can always add this on later. I'm thinking of going with the minimum configuration here of 6 GB. How much more would you recommend I get? 4. Hard Drives - Would you recommend to get 3rd party hard drives? I can imagine them being cheaper, but more reliable? 5. Graphics - Really no clue here. This will not be a gaming machine, though it'd be nice to have the ability to throw a couple games on there. To run two screens, I only need one NVIDIA GeForce GT120, right? Will better graphics cards improve my HD rendering time? 6. Display - A large HD display is nice. Any advantage to buying an Apple display? (since there's others with similar specs that cost less $). Thanks for your time!
