I currently have a Mac Book Pro (17", 1st Gen). However, I've been told the notebooks aren't good for photo optimization (ie. Color correction, etc). So I was playing with the idea of getting a iMac ... or a mac pro! The price is a big difference but wanted to see what everyone's opinion is. I'm predominantly going to be using it for Aperture, Lightroom, Final Cut Express, Motion, Photoshop ... and the simple apps (ie. iTunes, web-surfing). I may even break into Soundtrack one day but not now. That being said, can anyone recommend specs I should consider for the Mac Pro? I hear the ATI Radeon 3870 is a good video card. Or should I just get an iMac? Small note - I'm most likely going to store info to an external drive (ie. WD MyBook).
