So its been a really long time since I have had a Imac(20 inch G5 I believe was the last). MacPro 2.26 user since it was new. Lotsa problems with it lately video card is about had so forth and so on.. Really starting to nickel and dime me to death. I really am interested in the Imacs. I just dont know if I can hold out till new ones if they are soon or not. I am leaning toward the 27 inch 2.7 and maxing out ram instantly and adding ssd myself. How bad am I gonna miss the power of the Mac Pro? Usage includes heavy i photo and ripping and encoding bluray movies and burning home movies to bluray. Casual gaming. But mostly the bluray rips and burning and encoding home movies. Sorry to ramble but on vacation and have a broke Mac Pro at home killing me and have the money in hand for the 2.7 Imac.
