Looking to get some people's thoughts on this plan: I have been wanting a Mac Pro and finally after lots of saving I have the money to afford one. I am wanting it primarily for aperture, photoshop, some basic video (nothing major here...mostly short clips of me and my friends making music), and perhaps transferring some DVDs of mine into a hard drive. The iMac is not really an option as 1) I hate the glossy screens, 2) I already have two 24inch dell monitors 3) expandability is important as I need the hard drive space. The current mac pro is pretty old as far as computers go, but i think it is fast enough for what I need. It was when it first came out and none of the software I will be using has increased its system demands since. As far as games go, I play some games, but I am thinking of getting a PC next year primarily for a gaming machine. My current PC is hanging in there for the stuff I play. Right now I am stuck with using a MacBook Pro with a 2.4 Core2Duo processor. It is getting near the end of its lifetime. The battery is certainly starting to go (drains within an hour). So...buy a Mac Pro now, or perhaps wait until the new ones come out (should they come out). Of the things that could be upgraded on the new mac pro the only things of any interest is CPU, and video card...don't really care about thunderbolt. How many years do all of you think one can get out of the current model? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
