Need help weighing pros/cons and just venting my overthinking. I use my current MacBook Pro every single day, since 2010, for work. It's pretty solid except for the mini-dvi connection is weak and makes the screen flicker. Anyways...I'd want to hook up an extra screen but the USB to video doesn't cut it. New MBP is $1999 for the bottom end (15 inch) or $1900 with Student Discount. However, I could get a refurbished Mac Pro for $2600. Or a new one for $2800 with student discount. (And these prices will drop when the new MP or MBP come out too.) So for a few hundred dollars ($600ish) more I could have the infamous Mac Pro, instead of the MacBook Pro. My current laptop has lasted me 5 years, so I'd think the MacPro would last be at least 8+. (with RAM and SSD upgrades.) Also, from what I see, many people are selling the MacPros for a few hundred under what retail is at. Seems to hold it's value a bit more. But then again $2800 for a 2013 computer makes me snicker. I'm on my machine 10-12 hours a day. I could use more real estate. However, I'm not a developer, nor do graphic arts on it. I do some photography but it's just for fun. If I do need to work at a different location I can keep either my old MacBook Air or current MacBook Pro. I wish Apple would update the MacBook Pro to black or space gray. Or even make an update to the MacPro. I feel one of those may be my deciding factor. Would you make the jump to the MacPro? Is it crazy to have a powerhouse like the MP when the MBP will do just fine? Are there any other factors I should consider?
