What stopped you from purchasing a Maxed out iMac/MBPr? I'm a 17 year old videographer/indie filmmaker with a 2013 Macbook Air 11" Base Model, and as of right now I'm just doing Music Videos/Small Business Commercials, but my gigs & interest will become much more extensive in terms of short films and working with visual effects/high-end music production. I know the Air just won't be able to handle that, but would my needs still be far too little for even the base model Mac Pro as I start to shop for a different computer? What do you guys think? What work do you do with your 2013 Mac Pro?
