Well, I'm pretty much tired of windows. The reason I'd use windows again is for PC games. (unless I test out Windows Vista and I like it...) I want a Mac (and I can use Bootcamp anyway), I don't really have to list the reasons why I want one. I'm posting this here obviously because I want to record with this machine. I'm actually going to expression (digital art college in emeryville) and they use nothing but macs/protools, so I figure this will be not only convenient for me, but it will be a nice change from the stressful windows. Anywho, I'm on macmall.com right now, and I found these two: Link removed http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/detail.asp?dpno=7098937&Redir=1 Basically, the MacBook pro is mobile, has a firewire 800, built in iSight, and 160mhz faster(and I honestly don't really know how much of a difference that will make). The iMac has a bigger drive, bigger screen, is a lot cheaper, but is not mobile, no iSight (not THAT important), and no Firewire 800. Now the firewire concerns me. The 800 is... well, up to twice as fast, for interfaces, will that affect the latency of recording interfaces that I connect? I don't experience any delays now, and I have a PCI-firewire card installed in my PC. I'm just looking for some suggestions. I've heard both sides. I thought I'd ask the recording community here. And I'd like to here actual points, not (windows is teh ghey). Pros and cons, opinions and facts. Ya know. =) Thanks!
