I will soon be purchasing a new computer for my office (I teach college), but I'm having trouble deciding between a max-ed out mac mini and a quad-core mac pro. I like the small footprint of the mini, but wonder whether it will have enough power or memory to keep me content in the long run. I don't want to buy another computer until at least 2014. I like the power and upgradeability of the mac pro, but suspect it's overkill for what I need. Most of what I'll be doing is using the internet, doing word processingf, storing audio files (50 GB on iTunes and constantly growing), and, in the near future, some video editing probably using Final Cut Express. The other issue is that I really want to use dual monitors. I'm leaning toward two Dell 2209wa monitors, and I want to be able to use them without any resolution or connectivity problems. Money is not *that* much of an issue here since the funds will come from a research account. However, the more I spend on a computer, the less I'll have for other things; so I want to be financially wise. I also want to be strategic with this purchase, so that I don't end up with a computer I'm going to want to replace after only a couple of years. I'd appreciate any thoughts on which computer would be most suitable. Thanks.
