I'm studying 3D Graphics and Animation. My MacBook Pro from 2009 is still very good but it's been messing up since I dropped it a few times. For example, the trackpad locks at certain angles and prevents me from clicking or right clicking. It gets annoying. The USB ports and pretty much the other ports have shifted slightly upwards. I can still plug in things but they are no longer functional. This also includes the display port. I'm not sure how to repair this or how much it would cost to get it repaired. But at the moment I can't do my homework. I'll have to come to school to do it. Another problem with laptops is the fact that I get easily distracted. Instead of working I surf the web, watch clips, everything but getting work done. A stationary computer, in this case a Mac Pro, would allow me to fully concentrate. I'd have to spend about $3000+ on a Mac Pro alone but I don't even know if I need the specs for the MP for that price. I don't know the specs I'd need. I do have a job right now and it would take me a few months to buy the Mac Pro. But I don't know if a student like myself would actually need a computer like this. I personally hate using Windows. I'm not a Mac fanboy or anything but I only like using Macs. I don't know anything about graphics card so I don't know if an iMac (which is cheaper) would be a better choice for me. I've always wanted a Mac Pro. but what do you think? I'm also not sure if I'll last a long time in my current job (there's abeen a few issues).
