Hello all, I know there are many similar threads on whole iMac v Mac pro topic but I have read them all and still feel I have questions so thought I would post and see if I can get to the bottom of my queries... So I work for a broadcaster in the UK and do the majority of my work in work, but I do want to keep my home setup up to date... I currently run CS3 Production suite on my '06 Mac Pro, see my sig for specs... And definitely feel it's time for an upgrade. I have about £4k - £5k in my budget of which I am putting aside £950 for my CS3 to CS5.5 upgrade and wish to spend the rest on a new desktop. I am currently debating whether to get a 2011 iMac or a 2010 Mac Pro. With my job I get a good discount at apple and have spec'd up a couple of options but still cannot decide which way to swing it... Hopefully people in similar lines of work can give me their advice to help my decision. The spec of the iMac I would get is 27" i7 3.4GHz with SSD and 2TB HDD and 2GB GFX card and then max out the RAM to 16GB from Crucial. The added draw is the 27" screen... Even though I have 2x23" ACDs I would appreciate more real estate as I find working across 2 screens to be a pain in after effects (just my personal preference). With the Mac Pro I would love to get the best I can too but my budget holds me back.... I have spec'd up an the standard 8 core Pro with 16GB or 24GB of crucial RAM as well. I would love to get an Nvidia GFX card for the Pro too but have read mixed reviews as to it's necessity for AE so am holding off on including it in my budget until someone tells me it's a must.... This obviously may sway my decision to the Pro too... Anyway with my discounts and with the CS5.5 upgrade my prices are as follows:- iMac is £3335 and the Mac Pro is £3815 (£3715 for only 16gb ram). As you can see they are very close and in my budget so struggling to decide.... I know that most of the work I do is at work on their systems but I want to keep my personal setup running reasonably parallel, work just bought new Mac Pros, not sure of the specs as yet... Anyone care to help?
