G'day sky and welcome to the forums.

Go with the Mac Pro particularly if you can write it down to business depreciation. The iMac, whilst nice, are pretty limited with memory, graphic upgrades etc and are really upmarket laptops.

Let someone else handle the FCP however I like it personally.

What's the difference?...about 2x+ in price!

Which should you buy?...how much is your budget?

I'm confused,
are you asking between Imac and mac pro or
iMac and MacBook pro?
Mac pro is by far the best tho!!! Btw I would not reccomend the maximum 4tb memory cuz tbh save urself $2000+ and go with 2tb harddrive.
