Hello,
I am a 4th year architecture student who is looking for a really good and fast computer for my projects. I absolutely love every single Apple product, that's why I want to stay away from any PC computer. I have been reading reviews and looking for the new Mac Pro 2013, and I was wondering if it was the right choice for an Architecture student and for a graduate Architecture student?
I basically work with Revit, Autocad, Photoshop, Lumion, Sketchup, Rhino, InDesign, and all of the design and rendering programs.
I was thinking of buying the most simple Mac Pro and then upgrade it with time. Thanks for helping me with the choice!

Juan Fernando

It's Apple's most expensive & highest performance computer model. Is it a good computer for a college student…probably over-kill. But if you have the budget…why not!!

Not a lot of upgrading with the new Mac Pro. One single hard drive etc. This is what OWC offer in they way of upgrades:-

OWC Processor Upgrade Program options for Apple Mac Pro 2013

And:-

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
