Hi All, I have a Mac Pro 1,1 which the specs are in my signature and to be fair its not a bad machine at all, I use it for music production in Logic Pro X and Pro Tools 11, it runs these fine and I'm happy with it however it does load things slower than my MBA for example but that could be fixed with an SSD which is high in my priorities at the moment. The main concern I have with the machine is compatibility and upgrades. I am running 10.8.4 through MLPF and can't update to Mavericks with Tiamos file because I need to get a new graphics card. My MBA has Mavericks on and has some newer software on like Aperture and the new iWork suite etc and using files between them both is a nightmare because of one running Mavericks and the other running Mountain Lion. Also due to the nature of what I use my MP for the files I deal with are huge and I'm slowly running out of space on my RAID config inside the Pro so I need bigger disks. Hopefully you can see what I'm getting at here, an SSD I'm not bothered about as I can use that in a future machine, however if I get a new GPU I cant use that in a future machine as all the macs now cant really be upgraded, same with the hard disks I cant use 3.5" drives in anything else now, same with RAM etc, you get the picture. So I've been looking at a completely spec'ed out Mac Mini, 2.6 i7, 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD, 1TB 2.5 drive. How would this compare to my Pro? However I'm in need of a MacBook Pro Retina 13 for the bigger screen as my 11 inch is a pain so thats quite high up in my priorities also so I don't know when I would be able to get the mini (which obviously i would wait for the haswell refresh) due to money! So basically sorry for the essay but is it worth putting money into my Pro or should I try and hang on until I can afford a Mac Mini or similar computer? Anyone have any other options? I don't want to go the hackintosh route. Thanks and sorry for the essay! Jake.
