Yes, the age-old question. I come to you today to ask for your advice. There is a chance that my IT boss will let me get a Mac, but I know that we are on a budget. I wanted to know if an iMac would facilitate my needs, or will I have to get a mac pro? Below is what I currently do, and what I will be doing. -webmaster duties for college -some graphic design work for large format printing -a little video editing for the website -some use of AutoCAD through Parallels or VMWare Fusion (though I have to learn AutoCAD ) -minor grunt work I have to come up with prices for a DV camcorder soon, and I don't want that to eat too much into my "Mac budget"...if I can get one. So, do you think an iMac can handle those tasks, or is that too much for it? All advice is very much appreciated. Thanks for your time and patience.
