Thank you.
That still leaves me with two questions:
1. Will the lowest configuration of a Mac Pro be better at FCS 2 than the Macbook Pro?

is this noise normal?

I just bought a 2.4ghz imac less than a week ago.
When opening programs or saving things the imac has a weird noise. It does not sound like a fan, rather a "crunching" sort of noise. Every time I...

I need some opinions, 20" vs 24"
