    No one is arguing your points...the disagreeable point that was made was that a "true professional" would not use an iMac.  There are numerous professionals that I know personally who DO use iMacs...very high-end iMacs, but iMacs nonetheless.  And are quite successful with them.  And they have massive raid storage attached so internal storage is not an issue.


    That said, there are applications where a Mac Pro would be more useful, where you may want more on-board storage, even higher-end graphics, more memory.  One has to choose the appropriate tool for the application.  But a blanket statement that a true professional cannot use an iMac is just plain a false statement.

    Of course, this is utter nonsense.

    Then you are not a professional, but a "prosumer".

    The opinion of an anonymous poster, I'll make a note of it.

    Well, I decided on the 27" Quad iMac...  Will try an wait on upgrading my Macbook Pro until April or May and make a choice if need be at that time...   I'll post again after I have everything up and running for a few weeks.

    That is good news and congratulations.  Definitely post your experience and any questions about upgrading the MBP when the time comes.

    To my understanding, the problem with Imac's has to do with the display in terms getting true and accurate colors when printing. As a digital photographer, that is the only concern I have. I would welcome other thoughts.

    Amen, GreigH.



    I used a 20" iMac for years as a professional. I was in Advertising, and did copy and design.  It was amazing.  And 6 years later, with increased RAM, it still is a real workhorse.  I love it!
