    I have a quick question

    It's time for me to upgrade our computer. We will be using Final Cut Pro X for our video needs and Cubase for our audio.

    To get a solid 5 years out of the computer, which route should we go... a beefy iMac or beefy Mac Pro?

    HardDrive situation which is best? 1TB SSD or 256 SSD with Firewire/Thunderbolt External hard drive?

    - Use Cases -
    Video:
    HD clips - mostly 1080p
    will be using Effects on clips
    A little Motion 5 action

    Audio:
    multiple VST and VSTi configuration
    Recording multiple channels at once

    Take the SSD much much much quicker and put it on external hard drives
