Need help with computer
Jul 9, 2010

I have been wanting to switch to Mac for a while. One of the PC's in my office took a dump so instead of buying a new one for a workstation, was thinking of taking my dell pentium 4 with 3 gigs of ram here and replacing the home puter I do pp'ing with.

I have about $600 in cash cards and stuff for Best Buy, so was thinking of the 27" Imad withIntel® Core™2 Duo Processor / 27" Display / 4GB Memory / 1TB Hard Drive

How will this perfrom vs HP - Pavilion Elite Desktop / Intel® Core™ i7 Processor / 8GB Memory / 1TB Hard Drive, where this one has 8gb ram, 1 gig dedicated video memory and expandable to 24 gigs of ram.

I know the apple machines overall perform better, will it work for when I have Nikon Capture 2NX, View NX and CSPS all open and working at same time. My dell is so slooooow.
