I've been considering the new single Quad 2.66 MP w/ 8GB ram. Main advantage is the storage of course. Because of the high cost, I would need it to perform several heavy duty tasks at once. Do you think I can pull this off? Should I think about an i7 Imac instead or break it out across lesser machines? Running an XP virtual w/ 2GB ram that trasncodes video on the fly for streaming Leaving iTunes open for Apple TV streaming Working on multiple track sessions in Logic Studio 9 I would also likely be using handbrake for encoding video but wouldn't expect to be able to do this on top of everything else. Thanks for the feedback in advance!
