So I was just about to upgrade to MP 12 Core and then Apple went and did what they did. Everyone is saying not to waste the money for that machine, and to wait until 2013 for an actual "New" MP to come out. In the interim, I desperately need something new. My 2009 MP 8 core just can't handle my HD Video workflow anymore. I've been advised to look at the Imac instead, with the additional RAM option. So is this the way to go? While I wait for Apple to do a proper upgrade on the MP? I am a full time self-employed editor, I need to be able to run multiple programs at the same time, I.E. Premiere, After Effects, Audition, Photoshop, and Web browsing.
