Thread: MAC for XMas
11-26-2006, 10:52 PM #1MAC for XMas
I've been a PC user for about 7 years now. I've had a Dell Dimension 4100 from year 2000 and now it's finally "dying" poor thing. I'm actually typing on it right now
I'm planning on buying a MAC Pro for Xmas as a treat to myself. :girl:
I live in Los Angeles and will most likely be purchasing my MAC from The Grove Apple store. I have certain questions regarding this new system. I've had some exposure with MAC's years ago from Work but very limited in purchasing.
I was thinking of getting the 3.0 Processor with 1 gig stick of RAM for now (probably cost me about $3000 out the door)? Would this be good enough because I'm doing most of my work with FLASH MX2004, Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Dreamwaver.
Will I be able to move my PC files from my slave drive to my new MAC drive? or can I even install the old slave drive in my new Mac Pro?
Also, will my 20inch SONY monitor work with this new machine?
I'm extremely EXCITED to make this purchase but also want to make sure I do make the right decisions in regards to configurations . Thank you so much for your help!! :mac:

first off dont get the 3.0, Intel will be releasing the Xeon series chips for a long time to come and they just announced the quad core series as well, apple makes more money if you buy the 3.0 than it is worth to you and same with the 2.0. Get the standard 2.66 version (like i and many others did) with stock ram and order ram online....you are definitely going to want at least 4gb if you are doing anything intensive in photoshop too. Apple tech's should help you move your PC files from your old ccomp to the new apple in the store... and your monitor should be compatible through VGA or DVI connection for sure....and it will be quite a bit more than 3000 out the gate for all that.
