    Now don't get me wrong .... I love the iMac, and would not be considering a change if not for an Act of God crippling my mid-2011 27" i7 CPU iMac.

    Most of what I do ..... tons of photo editing ..... mild video editing (4k) ..... and generic office type apps.

    I am NOT a gamer .... at least not in the sense most people think.

    I can walk in and pick up the Mac Pro for $1,000 out of pocket as the Insurance company allowed me a little over $2,00 for the Mid-2011 iMac.

    This thread may be of interest to you:

    New Quad Core 2013 Mac Pros $1999 at B&H

    It'll be a nice upgrade from your 2011 iMac. Throw an eGPU at it if you decide you want to game heavily. Don't forget to factor in the cost of a monitor (unless you're keeping the 2011 and maybe target screen mode is supported / working).

    Not sure what I am going to do ...... keep plugging away on the crippled iMac with enhance backing up along the way hoping it doesn't die until next year!

    What apps are you using?

    You might be better served with a PC.
