Currently I have: 2013 27' iMac - 3.2 Quad Core/24gb ram/1TB 7200 rpm/ 1 GB dedicated video 2013 13' Macbook Pro - 2.4 i5 Dual Core/8 GB ram/128 SD But I'm really starting to hate having to worry about syncing files on both computers. I have an offer of $1250 for the iMac. Thinking of selling both and getting a 15 inch refurbished with 256 GB and 16gb of ram. What I will be using it for: Currently I'm a sports reporter, so I'm out in the field a lot. Edit a lot of interviews in Final Cut Pro (but nothing taxing) and also take a lot of photos and edit in Lightroom. In addition, I'm starting to take classes from TeamTreeHouse.com and am getting into more front end web design.
