I am a photographer / designer / art director and am ready to upgrade my work machine to a Mac Pro. Either one of these options are going to be a huge upgrade from my MacBook Pro 2.2 Intel and iMac Intel. But I need some help on which one. http://store.apple.com/us/product/FA970LL/A?mco=MjE0NjQ1OA or http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/mac_pro?mco=MTE3MDU The new Mac Pro can handle more Ram, has the faster 512 graphics card, but comes in about $200 more after I factor in the air port wireless and ram upgrades on both options. My question is, am I better off getting the faster 8 Core power of the refurbished model? I mostly run the Adobe Suite, including Lightroom 2. Also, is Apple care a good idea on either of these work stations. I have never really had a problem with any of my macs over the years (knocking on wood right now) but 3 years coverage seems really nice. Oh I should also mention that I like to keep my macs as long as possible. My iMac (the first Intel iMac) that I am replacing now has been doing a great job till a few months past when I upgraded to the Canon 5D Mk II and Lightroom and Photoshop started to get slow. Thanks in advance for your advice.
