I'm looking for some advice on what to purchase for a new desktop. I'm a sophomore in Electrical Engineering and currently have a Macbook that I use as my primary computer. Haven't hit any bottlenecks with speed, but I have found some limitations with it's graphics capability and screen real estate. When running multiple apps like Mathematica, Excel, Word, and Safari I find myself in a never-ending alt-tab toggle to do my multi-tasking and get projects finished. I also tried playing with some 3D modeling software the other day and my Macbook was acting like a VW Bug with 30 people in it... choppy and boggled. I've really enjoyed the stability of OS-X and Apple Apps vs my old PC's, so I'd like to stick with OS-X. I'd also like to get involved with some software that allows construction of 3D animations for presentations. I'm in a debate over a 24" iMac or a MacPro w/multiple screens (probably 23" jobbers). What really appeals to me about the mac pro is it's ability to drive so many displays... I really would like to have a system where all my applications/schematics/reports are open and available to see simultaneously. I was considering the following... Mac Pro Two 2.0Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processors 2GB (4x512MB) RAM 500GB 7200RPM SATA HDD NVidia GeForce 7300 GT 256MB Video Card Two 16x SuperDrives Bluetooth & Airport Two 23" 1920x1200 Apple LCDs Any advice from you experts on here would be much appreciated.
