As of now, I have a 17" Macbook Pro that I purchased late last year that I love, but I really don't need the portability of a laptop. I'd rather have the power of a home work station. I believe I could sell the macbook for nearly all the cost of the imac, or the majority of the cost for the mac pro. So now I'm debating between the high end imac or the entry level Mac Pro. The main reason I'm considering the Mac Pro over the imac is I love the option to easily upgrade and change things around on my computer over time, rather than having to buy a whole new computer. But the Mac Pro is $500 more, and I do not have a monitor as of now, but I do have a 40" HDTV that I can use for a few months until I save up enough for a proper monitor. Now my question is, is the entry level Mac Pro more powerful than the highest 27" imac, and over time, with the option to upgrade ram and such, do you think it's worth the extra cash? The only thing strenuous I use my computer for is gaming. Now I know Mac is not the ideal choice for gaming, but I want to be able to play Final Fantasy XIV at medium or higher settings, and would really like to be able to play Diablo III at high settings when it comes out. The only other thing somewhat strenuous I use my computer for is burning my DVD collection. I like having plenty of hard drive space for that and for backing it all up, which makes me lean more towards the Mac Pro since it's really easy to add more hard drives to. Have any of you recently debated between a Mac Pro and imac and went with the pro? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
