this is a question im seeing more and more on the forums and the answer is becoming painfully obvious. IF YOU ARE ASKING THIS QUESTION, GET AN iMac. There, ive said it. reason being, pros know they need a pro machine thus they get the mac pro. For all of us who are debating between the two, we are still trying to figure out how much power we really want, we should get the imac, it is powerful enough to do final cut, aperture, adobe etc. the only folks who can justify getting a mac pro are those PROfessionals who make their livings off of the machines. Everyone else, such as those who continually ask this question, are best off with a ram loaded C2D iMac.
