    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!!!!!

    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.11.1.
    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!
