I've been a PC user my whole life, I am extremely familiar with Mac and Mac software just don't own one. As many of you know the world of photography has completely changed when dslr cameras started shooting video. In order to meet the demands of our clients over a year ago we started shooting video. My pc was up to snuff when it came to editing Photos. I am now an avid user of premiere and my pc don't like it. My partner owns the entire cs6 suite so in order to streamline the business a new Mac is in order. This Mac will be used heavily with Lightroom, Premiere Pro, Speed Grade, and After Effects. I have determined a budget of 3k will be set aside for this project. I am considering a BTO 27 iMac with everything except the 768gb optional ssd. Or a refurb or new Mac Pro. I would appreciate any insight to assist me in my business decision.
