So, I'm looking to switch to a Mac in style. Here's what I'm currently running (the pertinent info): Dell XPS w/ a 3.2 Ghz Pentium D CPU 2 GB of RAM 500 GB Primary Drive (RAID, mirrored), 250 GB Secondary Drive 7-Format Card Reader Logitech Z-640 5.1 Speaker System Dell 20001FP 20.1 in Digital Monitor (Primary Monitor) Dell E193FP 19 in Analog Monitor (Secondary Monitor) Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Here's what I'm currently looking at: mac pro w/ Two 3.0GHz CPUs, Mac Pro RAID Card, 2GB RAM, 320GB Drive, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT ~ $5,000 8.0 GB Netlist / OWC Matched Set (2GB x 4) PC6400 DDR2 ~ $660 Four Seagate Barracuda ES ST3750640NS 750GB 7200 RPM SATA Drives ~ $960 Two Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC 30-inch ~ $2,100 Altec Lansing FX6021 2.1 Speakers ~ $250 Which brings the grand total to about $9,000, putting me pretty close to my $10,000 budget with taxes/shipping. So here are my questions: I'm looking at the Dell monitors because I've been happy with my current monitors. Any better monitor suggestions? I could be convinced to go down to 22-24" (I'm considering it anyway to save a few $$). Or should I wait for the new Apple monitors to come out? Does anyone have a convincing reason to choose a different set of hard drives to install? I've had good luck with Barracudas in the past, but I've heard some iffy things lately. I'm no audiophile, so the sound quality of my Logitech speakers sounds great to me. My thinking is that I can probably lose the surround sound (I very rarely have any 5.1 audio on my machine) and get slightly better sounding speakers to make up the difference. Any arguments for a different speaker set? Since my switch 6 months ago I've found that I must have an ergonomic keyboard. Are there any good Mac-friendly versions out there? The only one I've found from a little Googling is the Adesso keyboard, which looks pretty cheap/not necessarily as comfortable. If I don't go with the Dell monitors (which have card readers built in) I'll have to find a good card reader. Any suggestions that will fit the Mac Pro well? Should I skip on the hardware RAID? I live in Photoshop and expect to do a lot of video editing in FCP in the near future (one of the reasons I'm switching). I know that I don't need it, but is there a better place to put that $800? Any other thoughts? What would you do differently? Thanks so much for any advise you can give!
