I have been a PC user for quite a while - but now with a greater demand for video editting I am tempted by a Mac - specifically the mac pro as I already have a decent quality 20" display. I will still want to dabble in the gaming area, so VMFusion or Parrellels will be installed. On top of that I use my machine for "normal" home uses - web, music etc. My current machine is simply not powerful enough to start editting my track-day videos - which is an area I am keen to spend more time working on. I am more than happy with the Leopard OS - after a lengthy demo in an Apple store and was very impressed with the other "i" programs installed. I will purchase the machine through my company as I do need a machine on which I can work when required - some of which I will have to run on a VM. Should I go down the Mac Pro road OR go for a high spec PC? Will the video side really make use of the 8-core? And how fast can I expect PC Games to run on a VM eg Age of Empires 3? Is it worth the investment????
