Ok, I have read ALL the opinions on the new Mac Pros. I share some of the disappointment with the choices Apple made on the new line of Mac Pros. I have been waiting ofr the new releases before I switched from my old Dual 2.5 G5 to an Octo Mac Pro. Now, money-wise, it seems like last year's 8 core 2.8 with 16 Gigs of RAM will be a wiser choice than the 8 core 2.66 new Mac Pro, but money isn't everything I use Logic Pro. I have close to 20 different Virtual Instruments (VI's) and sample libraries and countless processing Plug Ins. Some of the VI's stream samples from harddisk, some stream samples from RAM. The big question....with the new architecture, memory controller, bandwidth, etc in the new line, do you believe I will see a performance boost worthy of the $1500 to $2000 difference in price? I will pay the money if, in the long run (meaning 4/5 years from now) the new machine will outshine the old one. I know it's a guessing game, but thought I would get some opinions. Remember, I am only interested in the music apps for this computer. Don't care about the graphics, etc. Just wonder if the new RAM and bandwidth should make THAT much of a difference. Cheers!
