Mac Pro (late 2013)

A Mac Pro is for serious work over multiple years. The best investment you can make in a Mac. See review.

A Mac Pro offers more CPU cores, more memory, more ports, quiet and reliable operation, and high-end GPU power. It’s the best Mac investment you can make.

iMac

Can be very fast, even faster than the Mac Pro for some tasks, BUT suffers from very limited expansion until Thunderbolt goes mainstream. And the shiny screen is mirror-like even in a dark room.
