Hi everyone! I decided to get a Mac a while ago since I was tired of my Windows machine getting viruses. However, I cannot figure out which one to get. I eventually narrowed it down to three options: MacBook Pro iMac mac pro I am an amateur photographer, and right now iPhoto would be enough for me. I would progress into Photoshop and Aperture eventually, though. I also want to work with Logic Express, which might be able to turn into Logic Pro someday. Games are also something I would want to do. I know all of my choices would run those, but which one to get? I like the MBP, and portability would be a nice bonus, but the problems it has right now are deterring me away from it. The iMac is the cheapest of the bunch, which is good. However, I don't like the idea of buying a completely new setup after such a time passes that my iMac gets too obsolete. Then there is the Mac Pro. I myself can find no faults in this one, except the tremendous amount of money you would be paying for it. It is powerful, almost fully upgradable since it is a tower, and supports a lot of RAM. But, I don't really think I need a Mac as powerful as the Mac Pro, and to drop all that money on it would make me a little nervous of getting the lovely gift known as Buyer's Remorse. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Mac Pro. It does cost a lot. I priced a Power Mac on Apple's website and it would cost me $2,600, plus I would want to buy 1 GB or 2 of RAM from OWC for around $180 (that's for 2 GB). However, I could save for it, and the fact I can upgrade is a big plus to me. The MacBook Pro (a 17'' model, since this would be my main desktop, too), with case and mouse (I hate using trackpads), would cost $2,900. A loaded iMac, containing 2 GB of RAM, 256 MB VRAM, and 500 GB HDD would cost $2,200. I hope I have given enough light on the subject for some tips on what to buy. I am seriously confused about this whole matter- they all look so good!
