This New Mac Pro Sounds Kick ASS!
Woah! This baby sounds bad ass! Is it finally time to upgrade my home office?
In 2006 I switched my primary computer (a laptop) from a crappy old Dell PC to a MacBook Pro. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. But maybe it’s time to really put something in the home that can process my photos like I *know* they need to be processed. And maybe I could finally even edit video.
I’d take the plunge today but I’m still conflicted as my home computer is my primary media server in my home and
1. iTunes sucks for large music libraries.
2. I like Microsoft’s Media Center extender strategy with the XBox 360s in my home.
3. Apple has no HD DVR strategy.
I’d consider just buying this baby and running Parallels, but I’m just not sure how well a system like that would do with my high end demands. Could I, for instance, be in the attic editing photos on the Mac and have Parallels effectively serving up media to my XBox 360 extender units somehow in the background? Somehow I doubt that pinning a giant media collection on the power of Parallels would be the smartest thing to do.
Oh, oh, oh, what’s early adopter to do? So tempting, but so conflicting.
