Hey All, I've been mulling over an upgrade situation, and I'd like some community input here—just wondering what you lads/lasses might do in my shoes. I bought a new MacBook Pro 13" with Dual Core 2.9 GHZ in January of this year. It's my work horse, as I'm a graphic designer and web developer. It's been nice to take it with me when I have a coffee shop work day (I do this a lot) or at meetings. However, I'd like a bit more graphics performance than I'm getting, largely for gaming. My creative firm is also getting heavily into motion graphics and video editing, so a beefier setup would be fantastic. I've been thinking about buying a new desktop/office-only computer. My requirements are thus: Needs to have better than Intel HD 4000 graphics, preferrably as much juice as is available Needs to run both Mac & Windows safely (thinking about Hackintosh stability, here). I use OS X 8 hours a day to work, but like to game in Windows 7. It might as well have more processor power. That'd mean a quad core system. Upgrade potential is a boon, but not necessarily requried. I'll load whatever I get with as much RAM as possible out of the chute. Changing out hardware in the future would save some headaches, though. I've already spent the money on the new MacBook earlier this year, so cost-effective would be good. Price isn't necessarily an object, but hey . . . it doesn't grow on trees. So there ya have it! To summarize: Desktop, beefy, good with video, plays (very) well with two OS's. Is Hackintosh a good (cheap) way to go, that's stable enough to work with professionally? iMac a better deal, here? Or some other option you can think of? Would buying an old Mac Pro to upgrade be a rational plan? Should I sell the laptop I have now in the process? Thanks, and sorry for such a long post! Any thoughts (seriously, dream in my direction, here) appreciated.
