    hey guys,

    I have two mac refurbished mac pros. a 1,1 mac pro that I upgraded and a 2008 mac pro 3,1 that I also upgraded. Im actually thinking of getting a 3rd mac pro because I do a lot of photography and video editing and want more power. But im actually tired of upgrading macs right now and would like to purchase a new mac now either mac pro or new mac book pro for.


    Just want something out of the box with power that can handle photoshop and final cut pro x plus be able to edit 4k footage.. can a refurbished mac pro handle this or is it time to get a new machine.


    thanks..

    SSD should be boot drive if you want the best performance.

    Or he can just keep waiting until Apple starts caring about those who need the Mac Pro again, and who knows when that will be...
