    Best cpu for Final Cut Pro?
    What's up people...

    I am in the market for a new mac to run Final Cut Pro...
    At the end of the day I want something that will give me good render times and also be able to run simultaneous apps like photo shop and logic.

    I was looking at a powermac pro with Two 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon.

    For 1500.00 more I could up to a Two 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon.

    Or I was just told that I don't need all that power and that I should just get an imac or laptop.

    There is obviously a large range in price between all of these...
    For me, performance always trumps cost. But I don't want to spend a whole bunch of money if I don't need to.

    Any suggestions? Cost/benefit analysis?

    The mac Pro w/ two 2.26 GHz Quad-Core's should be fine. I don't think there would be a big difference between the two. If you want smoother performance, just add a couple extra gigs of RAM and you should be all set
