Phil’s probably right, and I haven’t seen much medical themed content out there. Might be something to think about.

Stay away from iMacs if you’re looking to do anything beyond hobby work. You’re basically just buying a computer that limits you. Where as something like the Mac Pro is very easily expandable. Or save yourself a ton of money and get a PC :P.

Very true. The new iMacs are quite capable for certain things – and would likely offer a good speed increase versus the laptop you’re currently working on – but if you plan on doing a lot of intensive rendering (as it sounds you are), the iMac probably isn’t the best course to take. As Mark mentioned above, they are extremely limiting in terms of expandability and customization.

Of all the research I’ve done, the best bang for the buck is the 6-core 3.33GHz Mac Pro. Sure, it’ll cost you a pretty penny, but you’ll be blown away by the performance.

Just don’t cross over to the dark side by getting a PC! :)

Ok thanks but what about the guarantee. I think it expires when I open the iMac by myself and add some RAM .

No worries on the Apple Warranty. You can add your own RAM without breaking the agreement.

Any new iMac or Mac Pro would be a dramatic increase in power for you. Whichever Mac you choose to buy, the most important things to do is load it up with memory.

After Effects is a huge memory hog, so to take advantage of the 64 bits in After Effects CS5 , I’d recommend a bare minimum of 8GB RAM . One bit of advice: don’t buy your RAM from Apple! Their RAM is ridiculously overpriced. Purchase the memory from a trusted 3rd party such as Crucial or a OWC .

Another great place to get Mac performance and computer memory advice, are these 2 sites:

http://www.macperformanceguide.com

http://www.barefeats.com

I personally just upgraded in September to a 6-Core 3.33GHz Mac Pro w/16 GB RAM (I plan on upgrading to 32GB soon), and it is FAST !

Good luck, and let us know what setup you decided to purchase! :)

No they won’t. They’re in it for the money and they have no scruples.

People… do not hesitate to send all these links to support. Plagiarism is theft.

Thanks for the backup felt! It really is irksome to see certain “authors” making money off of knowledge that others provide for free.
