THE MAC PRO WITH SIDE PANEL
REMOVED TO SHOW IT'S POWER
The 8-core Mac Pro is an unbelievable machine. With a top processor of nearly 3Ghz on 8 cores and the potential load of 32Gb of ram, this machine will FLY!!! No more waiting. To top it off, you can get a couple of superdrives to duplicate DVD's, run more monitors than a man could afford and access 5 independent hard drives without going external....each bay holding a potential of 1 terabyte of storage space. Needless to say this machine is built for editing and creative design!!!!
FINAL CUT STUDIO 2
The other purchase on it's way soon is Final Cut Studio. Unarguably this is one (if not the best) editing suite on the market. This will do everything I could ever think of and some things I probably don't know even exist. The new version (Studio 3) will most likely premier following the release of the new operating system.
In short, I can't wait to get the new gear as it will greatly increase my productivity. I currently have footage sitting on standby waiting for that magical moment. I also have a short film nearly done, but it is currently on hold due to some compatibility issues. Hopefully I will have something completed sooner than later.
Anxiously awaiting the arrival of new technology,
