Advise a Newbie. Just a simple question, Im putting my feelers out there to see what yall have to say. Anyway. Im contemplating getting a new computer. I will be using it primarily for CS4, browsing, office docs etc. The thing is that Im torn btwn mac pro: 2.26GHz 6GB RAM (which i may upgrade with 3rd prty mem) 640GB 7200-rpm ATA NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512MB applecare As Priced: $3,198.00 OR MacBook Pro: 17in 2.93GHz 4GB 1066MHz RAM (which i may upgrade with 3rd prty mem) 320GB @ 7200 no vid card options applecare As Priced: $3,217.00 WHAT TO DO?? How do they compare? I dont know which to get. Also Im planning on getting a 32in 1080p lcd monitor/tv anyway so an external monitor is not a prob. I dont forsee specifically needing something portable as with my previous setup I had a tiny vaio hooked up to external monitor and rarely unhooked it but after a faithful 4 years its dead. My main question is which will Feel Faster and which do you think is better suited to a longer lifetime? Im also planning on running VM Fusion and read somthing about upgrading RAM and something about 32/64 bit windows not recognizing a certain amnt of RAM or something (i honestly cant keep up with all the specifics, could someone help clear that up). I dont want to have to deal with breakdowns or slow downs with in the next 1-2 yrs. I personally have always felt that desktops were sturdier, longer lasing machines. What insights do yall have? Thnks for reading.
