Hi people! Is The Imac the right choice for AE or is it too weak for it (going to do AE temlates for videohive) your opinions are very valuable.

I think for AE Templates in general a 27” iMac is strong enough. However if you’re also aiming at doing some 3D Work with for example Cinema 4D you should bare in mind that as far as i know only the 27” i7 has hyper threading, which means it’ll give you 8 cores to render instead of 4. i’ve been using the 27” i7 iMac since April 2011 and i’m perfectly happy with it’s performance (after manually upgrading the RAM ) for Cinema 4D, After Effects and Premiere. :)

For the $ you are gonna pay for a Mac Pro you could get twice as fast PC.. with the the same hardware the Mac uses.. doubled in parameters. An apple fan could prove me wrong I guess. That’s my point of view.

+1 both MacPro’s components and therefore the momentary prices are quite outdated.

I bought a Mac Book Pro 13” so i could make iPhone apps. That was the only reason. And now when i realized that i will not make apps for another year i feel stupid for wasting 1200e on that…

AE on a Mac was never an option for me because of the reasons Inlife mentioned…

I agree with adintermedia : for AE Templates in general a 27” iMac is strong enough.

The iMac was last updated on May of 2011 so there should be a update coming soon(ish). I suggest you wait and see what the new update will offer and make your decision then.

thanks thats the point I will wait some time to see what is the latest update. Im shure that pc configuration will look better on paper but still I think that Imac 27 in real world (windows, wiruses and etc.) will be more stabil. am I right?
