Ok, I've been an avid PC user for years and never really got into Macs. The last experience I had with a Mac was soured years ago during a web design gig I had. The GPU made me cringe, and the one button mouse and tiny keyboard weren't too exciting. Fast forward a few years and I came upon Unity, the first app that made me want to get a Mac. I was comparing Unity against Beyond Virtual, and I must say it beats it hands down (with acception with features like realtime shadowing), the community here is much more interesting, the docs on Unity are second to none, and the support is encouraging. So I did some research for a few hours on the new intel Macs, namely because there's some apps on Windoze that I still need. For instance this is my current pipeline for my studio - C4D (exclusively, so I know it works well with Unity) - Maya - Zbrush - Mudbox (will replace Zbrush once available, and currently only runs on PC) - Photoshop - Flash/Dreamweaver - Beyond Virtual (which will change to Unity) And that's about it, now I look at it, I can pretty much use an Intel Mac primarily hmmm. The Mac OS X is simply amazing and my wife would get a kick out of using it for sure. Anyhoo what I need help on is choosing one of these lil beasts, I'm a total Mac noob and have no idea what is what really. Both the iMac and Mac mini are amazing space savers and with this http://www.apple.com/macosx/switch/howto/kvm.html I can have a great setup going. One thing tho is that Macs are pricy lil things much like the Ipods sheesh! Apples marketing is superb is that respect. Anyhoo, so I would like some help deciding what's best price/value wise, and I'm not into buying it off e-bay especially electronics So take into consideration I was about to buy a new dual core PC next week: Here are things I would look for - Dual core CPU - Capable graphic card (I'm currently using a GeForce FX 5900 Ultra on my PC, so something to match or better that) - minimum 2gigs of ram - decent HDD space - No logitech support which is a shame, so I guess a *Mighty Mouse* - I love my M$ Natural Keyboard - Dual Screens are a must (but how would that work with A KVM? In all honesty, I'm really impressed with what I seen with the latest Macs and the new OS X (Vista looks like the same crap all over again to me :roll and the new Mac ads are hilarious and so true :? heh. Anyhoo, any help would be greatly appreciated, cause it looks like I'm about to drop some serious coin. It's too bad I can't demo the engine somehow or even watch a video of someone using it before a purchase... but the long and short of it is, I'll at least have a Mac which gives me access to apps like Final Cut Pro and Shake! And oh I'm in CA..NA..DA Cheers!
