Hi, I'm digital media student in college. My career goal is to become a film/video editor. I need to buy an iMac or mac pro, but do not know anything about buying computers. I am going to buy it in June 08, and am taking the time between now and then to get all the advice I can get. What I do know is this: 1. Has to be at least 20 inch screen, most likely a 24 inch. 2. It has to handle (meaning, not be slow and have sufficient memory) Adobe Production Premium (photoshop cs3 extended, illustrator cs3, flash cs3, aftereffects cs3, premiere, soundbooth, encore) 3. Has to handle Final Cut pro 4. It has to last me 3-5 years. (I won't be able to afford buying one by myself after I graduate, which will be sept 09). 5. It's got to be able to do professional work for when I graduate and obviously can't use the student labs. 6. Budget: $2000-$3000...possibly can push it to $4000 As someone with a future career in digital media, should I invest in the Apple cinema? Or is that unneccessary? Thank you in advance for your time!
