Hi everyone, At the moment I am the "proud" owner of a Toshiba laptop and I've been wanting to upgrade to a Mac for a while. I went to the local official reseller today and if the salesperson is right, I'd need to spend about 4000 euros. Yikes! I'm a bit sceptical though if I actually need all of the specs that the salesperson recommended, so I was wondering if anyone here could help me with some advice on what specs I'd need. The software I'll be using and how often I'll be using it: * Adobe Photoshop (a lot, I'd also need to be able to use it for larger, heavier files) * Adobe Lightroom (a lot) * Maxon Cinema 4D (a lot, mainly still images but with some elements that require quite a bit of rendering time/power) * Gaming, mainly games like Tropico, simulation games (regularly) * Adobe Illustrator (rarely) * Adobe After Effects (rarely) * Adobe Premiere Pro (rarely) My budget is flexible. I'm still saving up to get an iMac and since I don't need to replace my current computer immediately, I can take my time to save up some more. However, if I can spend 2000 euros instead of 4000, that would be nice. I am a student and will be for a while (working towards my master's degree), so I can use the student discount. At the moment I have a laptop, but I don't need for the new computer to be a laptop. I think and iMac would be the most logical option, but I'm also open to either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro. 27-inch with retina would be nice, but I'm fine with 21.5 inch as well. Ideally I would be able to hook up my Wacom Cintiq 13HD to it as well.
