Hello, I'm currently using a 3.06 GHz iMac with 4 gigs of RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS. It's still serving me well for my every day needs, such as email, web browsing, music listening, video watching (>720p), Photoshop editing, scanning, music ripping, etc.. However, heavy work loads under Photoshop (>300 dpi), Illustrator and InDesign push the machine to its limits. Modo, AutoCAD, Maya and other 3D-oriented apps could easily devour even more power. Currently, I'm not using CAD- and other 3D-apps that much, apart from Sketchup and Maya, but once I start my architecture classes in March, I'm going to need something far more powerful, and even portable. I'm probably going to sell my current mac. Then, I'll purchase a MacBook Pro or even another iMac!? The iMac would easily be my preference, since it usually sports a similar or even better performance than the MacBook Pro for less money, a bigger display, and more voluptuous HDD. However, I absolutely need some degree of portability to do some serious work when I'm travelling or spending my holidays at my parents'. I'm talking here about 3 to 4 months a year. The MacBook Pro does also feature the anti glare screen that I'm really fond of, but does it/is it going to have enough juice? Any suggestions? The iMac isn't prone to be upgraded very soon, however rumor has it that the MacBook Pro line will get a refresh in the foreseeable future!? I'm willing to spend 2,500 Euros.
