    Any of them will get the job done...Mac Pro's are Apples top-end computers. If they cannot get it done...then nothing Apple sells will.

    Question Please recommend some dealers
    Thank you for the reply, Nick. I haven't used Mac for nearly 18 years. Where can one buy the latest models near Romford, Essex please?

    Are there any established online dealers as well? Do one neeed a 8-core for music composition and recording? Or is it just a waste of money? Can one contact the desktop to a Dell screen please? Can a laptop do the same job please, bearing in mind you get less than what you pay for for laptop?

    I'm in the United States...but have you heard of the Apple Store...or Apple.com?

    If you don't have a physical Apple Store near you...I'm sure you can order a Mac Pro from (Official Apple Online Store UK )...and it will be delivered to you.

    HTH,

    Regarding this set of questions. I seriously doubt that a Mac Pro desktop is needed. I'm sure an iMac or MacBook Pro would be fine (both of which are very powerful as well).

    Please visit the link I provided above...and check out the various computer models.

    It's spooky! I am actually Chinese. I do know there is one Apple store at Lakeside. I just wonder if there is any nearer. I wish I could get one US price as Apple sells its ware at a much better rate than here. We are taken for a ride.

    Thanks all!
