    Graduating college, Which Mac product is best to edit with?
    I'm graduating college in a month. We use Vegas pro here, and It's not really used in the professional world. I want to start working on a mac so I can use Final cut pro and Avid. My only problem is that I'm not sure which product is better. I'm looking to buy a refurbished IMac or Mac pro. Can someone help me, please?

    Here is a description of a refurbished Mac pro I currently have my eye on:

    One 2.8GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon E5462 "Harpertown" processor
    4.0GB (2x2.0GB) PC2-6400 (800MHz) DDR2 ECC fully-buffered DIMM, supports up to 32.0GB
    320GB Serial ATA hard disk drive @ 7200RPM, includes four drive trays
    DVD-RW/CD-RW SuperDrive-DL
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics with 256MB GDDR3 memory
    No AirPort Extreme card
    Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
    2- Dual-link DVI ports
    5- USB ports
    2- FireWire 400 ports
    2- FireWire 800 ports
    2- Ethernet ports
    2- 16-lane PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 expansion slots (video card installed in one)
    2- 4-lane PCI Express (PCIe) 1.1 expansion slots

    If I edit off a hard rive, will I still be able to edit HD videos on a IMac without it being slow?

    What iMac do you have your eye on - so we can compare it to the Mac Pro?
