I recently purchased a Mac Pro to perform Movie editing tasks. My intention was to replace my iMac power Pc which was not compatible nor fast enough for iMovie and Final Cut. The Mac Pro has 4 HDD bays which allows you to store tons of movie files and music on one great computer! The Mac Pro is able to perform tasks such as movie editing quickly and efficiently. With enough memory or RAM, you are able to process two movies and read your emails all at the same time without breaking a sweat!
I use my Mac Pro as a regular PC to read daily emails as well as doing intense movie editing tasks using Final Cut and iMovie. The Mac Pro is an all around not crash prone computer. Having a quick processor, lots or RAM matched with a good video card is also a good combo for gaming! For the games that are out in the Mac Format, the Mac Pro handles playing intensive games flawlessly!
If you happen to need extra HDD space on your computer, all you have to do is buy a internal HDD, slide open the right side panel of the Mac Pro and pick one of the four bays. Once you have picked a bay, simply push the HDD in the slot and your set! In my fist bay, I have a 320G HDD; in the second bay, I have a 1TB HDD. Both of my HDD are 7200 RPM. The components in the Mac Pro are all easily upgraded weather it be RAM or even the video card, they are all upgradeable.
The Mac Pro is a real piece of art! It is made out of aluminum and has a distinctive design. Even though aluminum is very light, the Mac Pro is still very heavy. The first time I picked up my Mac Pro and had to bring it up a flight of 20 stairs, I knew the Mac Pro was a solid computer and it was not going to be stollen with ease.
The Mac pro has two dual-link DVI ports (which allows to be connected to two monitors or a monitor and a projector at the same time), USB ports in the front and the back as well as fire wire ports in the front and the back of the computer. The Mac pro also has Ethernet and phone Line ports in the back. Unfortunately, the Mac Pro does not come standard with a 802.11 N wireless card. If you do not order the Mac Pro with a wireless card, the only way you will get wireless Internet on your computer afterwards is by buying a USB adapter or By Changing the logic board (over £700). What I am trying to say is make sure you include the wireless N card when purchasing you Mac Pro.
To conclude, you can't go wrong buying the Mac Pro. The Mac Pro will perform well at anything you may throw at it. I highly recommend the Mac Pro to anyone wanting to edit Movies using Apple software. Apple software is very easy to learn and fun to work with. One word, pay extra and get the wireless 802.11 N card pre-installed in the Mac Pro, you will not regret it!
