Hi all, I occasionally do some video and photo editing. Not as a professional, but as a "commited creative". I'm about to start a PhD in contemporary art; it's mainly theory but I plan on invest more time and energy on my side projects. I'm thinking about getting a desktop. For the time being, I don't even need a maxed out Imac but software is always evolving. I'm wondering to what extent could a Mac Pro be more future proof. For instance, if I buy an Imac I'm pretty sure that within a 3/4 year period I would need to consider a new buy. My reasoning here is that, maybe, it would make more sense to invest in the upgrade of the Mac Pro instead of buying a new machine. Does it make some sense or would this just by way too expensive and not really worth considering?
