Hi guys and girls!
I'm looking at replacing some different bits and bobs with a Mac Pro and wondered what people would recommend and if anyone knows of any good places to get refurbished Macs in the UK?
I currently have a mac mini acting as a test webserver, phone machine, and itunes server. I also have a Lacie MiniDisk ethernet backup drive which my MBP backs up to daily, I do site backups to it and it stores my itunes library.
I want to get a Mac Pro to do it all in one and for me to use as my day to day machine. I get a little bit sick of having to plug everything in and out of my MBP depending on whether I'm working at the desk or not. Lazy I know but there you have it.
I know I don't need a top of the range Mac Pro - same will say I probably don't need one - but don't know what to look at.
I use the following apps sometimes all open at once
2. Photoshop (CS2)
5. Safari / Firefox / Opera
8. Parallels running XP whihc has IE6 / IE7 open
10. other little bits and bobs.
Thanks for any advice or recommendations,

I'd go for iMac 24" or if you already have a nice monitor, the mac pro 4x2GHz will give you all you need. get some more RAM as well.
