I want to get a desktop Mac in the future, but I'm not sure which model the Mini (including server version) or the Mac Pro to get. Here's what I currently do, albeit slowly on my '08 MBP: Photoshop/Illustrator Mamp with multiple databases/websites Extensive Movie Library Some photo internet downloads and some gaming (mostly Blizzard/Activision) My '08 MBP seems to handle most of that pretty well for now, but I would very much like to get better graphics to be able to drive a TV and my LCD. (My current setup uses my MBP in clamshell mode most of the time.) The other stipulation is that I'm continually running out of space on my 200GB HDD which requires me to keep my entire Movie database on externals. With a Pro, I could move the drives out of the external enclosures into the main tower and not have to have too much peripherals, but I'm wondering if the Pro would simply be overkill in my situation? Another question I had was how would a Pro handle in a small home theatre situation? Do Pros have IR recievers for the Apple remote?
