Hello

I am very confused and need some Pro advice please!

I dont understand all the different insides of a mac but I know what I need.

I need a fast mac with lots of memory and a good processor for doing a lot of photoshop, Final cut pro and garage band editing.

I am not a pro and I do not have a business yet but I will be making a lot of short videos and eventually a few one hour movies.

I have heard some say I should wait for the new Mac Pro but then others tell me the Mac Mini can do everything I need.

If you can help me I will be so very grateful for your time.
Thanks!

Maybe we can narrow things down a bit. Do you have a maximum budget?

as pigoo3 said- knowing your budget is good avice. For me display size and 'all in one' is important - I am in process of selecting options in an imac with $800 spread of upgrades. Good luck.
