Hi there, I've had MacPro on my list for bout 5 months now, and when I get it (still saving), I want to be sure that I get it right - thank so much for any help. Firstly, I will be using it for using these programs: Final Cut Pro Photoshop Aperture Dreamweaver I have an enormous amount of photos, but I've not turned pro yet (just finishing uni), and so am getting Aperture for when I start to get serious. Film wise, it'll be more just short films for VideoPodcasts for a band I work with, or for YouTube, possibly some wedding stuff maybe etc. My question is about Hard Drives, speeds, size, price... I already have about 500GB of stuff, and I imagine that within a year that will have doubled - so we're talking about 1TB of data, plus some sort of backing up system. Would it be a good idea to get a built in 750GB drive from apple, and then when it arrives, add in a much smaller (say 160GB), but much faster drive for putting the operating system on? I don't know how fast they go, but I've read about them on this forum. Other than the OS, what else would I put on this small, fast drive? Also, technically, whe the MacPro arrives, is it simple to swap the drives about and put in a new one? Do I have to do anything clever? So if I had that, and the 750GB, what would be a good solution for backing up? Should I just buy some external drives and stick them in the back? I don't really understand RAID in is various forms, but I've hard of daisychaining them together. How does this work? I don't want to spend an enormous amount but know that my data is priceless, so with money in mind, what do you suggest as a good Hard Drive set up for my uses? Thanks so much for reading this far, sorry if I've rambled!
