    Imac vs mac pro january 2011
    Hi all

    I'm a newbie to the world of video and movie making. I'm looking to make movies and edit, one day professionally, and was wondering what would be the ideal machine.
    a mac pro
    or an I mac.

    at the moment, I'm in the learning stages, but as I advance I'd hate to be held back by equipment. So I figure its best to get the best machine possible to avoid future issues.

    any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

    Thanks
    EK

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB Flash Storage, 3.3Ghz, 16GB memory, OS X.11.5.
    Go for the Mac Pro.

    Upgradeable graphics, more memory, better Superdrives and easier to replace/install additional hard drives but then again I am a Mac Pro fan that dislikes glossy toy iMacs.
    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!
