    Is the Mac Pro's specs.
    Or should i get an I3 iMac.
    I usualy have 3-5 compilers open on my Macbook.
    Along with 10 or more Photoshop projects and Steam, so it can get slow.
    I would like something that would handle that well.
    The only thing im put off with the Mac Pro is it has no screen.
    I do have a screen but my younger brother is using it mostly all the time.
    But i can buy another one.
    Which do you think would be best?
    Thanks guys :D

    Can you afford a 27" iMac with i5 or i7 CPU? Take a look at refurbs, some of them go for as low as ~1500$. Those will beat the Mac Pro easily.
