Ok so the classic question, the new iMac vs the old Mac Pro, which one is faster. I know the whole 'faster' thing is relative too depending on applications you're using but what I use the Most is Office 2011, iTunes, Safari, Chrome etc... the only thing is I multitask A LOT. I mean I have many many windows open at any given time because of the projects I work on and manage (I manage an IT team) so I have spreadsheets going and 10 draft emails going and 40 Safari/Chrome tabs going all at once usually etc... Currently I have a MacPro 1,1 with 2 Xeon 5100 dual core 2.0GHZ chips. My job is offering to give me one of the new 27inch iMac i5 @ 2.8GHZ. One of the main reasons I'd think about upgrading is the fact that currently there is work on Windows computers that I need to do so I VNC into a Windows computer as my current MacPro cannot run Parallels very well and it slows down both the Mac side and the Windows side too much to be useful to me. If the new iMac processors could handle virtualizing Windows XP using parallels well then I'd definitely do the switch. Any guidance would definitely be appreciated. Thanks all PS. The iMac i5 is the clarkdale chip and the i7 is the lynndale chip right?
