RAM for laptop or CPU for desktop?

  1. CPU

  2. RAM

  3. Both units are okay as it is

    Hello. I have a 2.66GHz Mac Pro (4-core) with 8GB RAM.

    I also have a 2.80GHz MacBook Pro (mid-2009) with 4GB RAM.

    My main programs are Flash, Dreamweaver, and Photoshop. I use these on both Macs.

    I do a small amount of AfterEffects, UltraFractal, Bryce 6, and Cinema4D, but nothing *big*. I typically use these on the Mac Pro only.

    I spend most of my time on the Mac Pro.

    Which would be the better choice?

    Thx!

    You should put the upgrade options in the post itself.
    Personally I would go for the MPB so you can edit on the go and be untethered from the desk.
