Hi I've been a PC user all my life (though I did a design diploma eons ago and my college only had Macs so I do have a bit of experience with them and they are the choice of all my friends who are now designers!) .. Not really a techie but read up a few online articles so I know just a little...so need some advice.. Here goes: I am considering buying a Mac for my family as my teenage daughter is into creating digital artwork and would be going to college to study art or film/music production - all of which would probably be best done on Macs. And my younger daughter looks set to follow suit... So I am willing to part with about £1.5k for a Mac but I want something future proof.. So I've been looking at the Macs on the Apple shop. I've narrowed down my choices to either iMac or Macbook Pro. I was initially drawn more to a desktop computer as they usually are more powerful than laptops with the processors, but here it seems the Macbook Pros have just as good specs as the iMac, with the added bonus of being more portable although the computer would probably not be lugged around much... Ideally I want an i7 quad core, 16 gb ram at least, and pcie flash drive if price permits (if not fusion is maybe fine)... I have an external hdd already so I can use that to add storage... The iMac does have a more beautiful and larger screen suitable for gaming (though my kids ever seem to play minecraft, roblox and terraria so I don't think the graphics in the screen needs to be very souped up although they might get into more graphics intensive gaming in future who knows... I am thinking of buying refurb too, as they are cheaper, but what are the cons of that? And should I wait till Apple releases a newer version of iMac/Macbook Pro this year or the next before buying? And which would suit us better - iMac or Macbook Pro? Thanks in advance for any advice! I'd really appreciate it.
