Hey guys - I'm new around here I'm a PC only user going 100% Apple ASAP - but I've got some questions about what to buy - hope you got the answers I work with highend 3D daily using 3dsmax among other programs - but 3dsmax is more the less the only app that doesn't have a OSX version - and we'll be switching to Maya in the near future. (watch our showreel at www.resetfilm.dk) What I want to buy: Workstation (for highend 2D/3D and compositing) Mid-range computer (for private stuff like photos etc.) Workstation: Obviously, the updated Mac Pro is perfect as a workstation - but I HAVE to get a Cinema Display as well for aesthetic reasons. This is problematic because these haven't been updated for years - and I guess an updated version with better specs and iSight could be announced any day? What do you guys think? Mid-range computer: I guess the iMac is the way to go here, but there are a couple of things: The MacRumors Buyer's Guide has the "Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle" - I'm a bit confused here cause the iMac got updated in Oct. last year? So why would it be at an end stage in the life cycle? Also I guess it will be a while before it got upgraded again? About the RAM for iMac (and any Apple product) - I'd upgrade it myself - but I would need a bit of help here. Any preferences? I just know it needs to be SODIMM 200-pins, DDR2 PC5300. Thanks! This is an awesome forum btw.
