Since I've lost my editing job at teh station, I want to put together my own studio for freelancing, etc. I know I should probably bite the bullet and get a MacPro, but it's tempting to just get an iMac. MacPro: * Two 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon (8-core) * 2GB (2 x 1GB) * 500GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s * NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB (Two dual-link DVI) * Two 16x SuperDrives * Apple wireless Mighty Mouse * Apple Wireless Keyboard (English) + Mac OS X $3009.00 +300 for a monitor =3309.00 iMac # 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme # 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB # 1TB Serial ATA Drive # SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) # Apple wireless Mighty Mouse # Apple Wireless Keyboard (English) + Mac OS X # Accessory kit # ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory # 24-inch glossy widescreen LCD # AirPort Extreme # Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR $2424.00 What do you think? I could get the single 2.8GHz processor and subtract 450 from that MacPro. edit: uh, should this be in the Mac Shack?
