Hi everyone! I'm a Fashion Photographer and Retoucher and I need a machine that is upgradable and that will last me a long time. I currently own a 2011 Mac Mini (2.7GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7, 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM, AMD Radeon HD 6630M) and I have an opportunity to buy a 2006 Mac Pro in perfect condition (hairline scratches) with the HD3870, Xeon 2x2GHz for about 700 euros. When I read the article about the new Mac Pro that is coming out which does not seem upgradeable and is made of plastic I was so shocked and outraged that my only option seems to be to rush for an old Mac Pro before they become unavailable. Ideally I want a machine that will run Photoshop CS6 and Adobe 4 fast and very smoothly. I'd like to enable hardware RAID 1 somehow (not sure if this is possible?) and eventually upgrade other components over time. Is this a good idea? I need RAID 1 because of Adobe discontinuing the Creative Suite which means they will eventually shut down the product activation servers, therefore once CS6 and LR are installed on the computer I need them to stay there as is even if my hard drives die without needing to reactivate which will then become impossible. TLDR Version: - I need a Mac to last me decades, future hardware requirements, standards and so on are not an issue, the software I have now is as complete as it will get for my needs. - RAID 1 - Mac Pro 2006 | Yes/No | Can I "modernize" it? What should I do? Awaiting your input. Thanks guys!
