I had been saving my money for some time to buy a Macbook Pro (and I was waiting for an update before purchasing), but my ex girlfriend had an accident with my G4 Powerbook before christmas and it has resulted in my insurance company replacing it with a brand new Macbook Pro today. So...as my main computer is a custom built PC (sorry guys), I'm now thinking of using the money I had saved to replace my windows PC with either an iMac or a Mac Pro. I have a 22" HP monitor so, buying a Mac Pro without a display wouldn't really be an issure. I use my PC for the following: Video Editing (rarely) Games: Call of Duty 1, 2, and 4(rarely) Photoshop (frequently) - looking to buy Adobe CS3 Sound recording (occassionaly) Web Design (frequently) The applications that I have got (primarily for my MBP), are: Logic Studio 8 Final Cut Studio 5.1 (universal edition) Mac Office 2004 (will be upgrading to Mac Office 2008) Adobe Creative Suite CS2 Premium (will be upgrading to CS3 at some point) iWork 08 What I'm wondering is, would I be better off buying a high(ish) end iMac (probably the 24" version), or do I buy the low end Mac Pro with the 2 x 2.8GHz CPU's? Would I really need the power of the Mac Pro? I considered needing it for hard drive space, etc, but I am planning on buying a 2nd hand G4 PowerMac to use as a file server (or potentially use my old PC for the same job (although not the PC i'm looking to sell)).
