If my mind is set on a Mac Pro, which model would you advise for someone handling a 85/15 split of office functions (email, ms office) and amateur creative (music, video, photo - itunes, ilife, etc). No pro apps or pro needs. Just want a desktop that has a track record of longevity, has enough ports (for me, the mac pro) and i have the OPTION of upgrading down the road. I`m guessing the base quad core would suit me well. I currently have a MacBook Pro i5 I`m getting rid of. Want the bigger screen real estate. What configuration would you choice in the Mac Pro line for someone like me... Also, what would be the best, most efficient way to set up extra hard drives. Buy externals and FW800 them, esata them? Or fill the extra bay slots with internals? If using all 4 internals, is there a method of connecting them so they run as quick as possible - same as you can daisy chain externals? Again, I know an iMac would be fine for me, but the Mac Pro is where I am at.
