Hello, dear ladies and gentleman. If you could lend me your expertise for a moment, I would love some advice. Our company is need of a new desktop and I've been doing some reading but need some pushes, one way or the other. We're trying to decide, basically, between buying either: A fairly standard 8-core, which we're drawn to mainly for the expandability of the memory and the hope that software will catch up eventually to make better use of the multiple cores or A quad-core with 8-16 MB of memory, which, the more I read, sounds like it may work better with many applications that aren't yet ready for 8-core machines We're graphic designers, so we mainly use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, with some work in Captivate with Windows XP via Boot Camp and Parallels, a little bit of Flash and HTML design, and that's about it. We currently use CS3, but have been contemplating upgrading to CS4, though I'm now reading some not so great user reviews regarding slow speeds, freezes, etc. with CS4...so any input anyone could give me on that would be greatly appreciated as well. ...or should we just wait until Q1 to see if the whole Mac Pro gets this fabled Gulftown upgrade? We ideally need something nowish, but, you know... Thanks in advance, ya'll.
