Upgrading my "MacBook Pro" to "Mac Pro"

Recommended Posts


Anyone here with the new Mac Pro (Nehalem Processor)?

I'm about to buy a Mac Pro and would like to know if there is better to buy the "2.66 x 2" with 6 GB memory or the 2.26 x 2 with 16GB Memory.

Will Renderworks gain anything if I upgrade graphics to "ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB" ?

The only rendering mode dependent on the graphics card is OpenGL, everything else depends on the CPU.

Do you have a storm cloud hovering over you!? Just so you know, you are cool enough to have a Mac, but if you don't want one, that is okay as well. Peace out! ;) BTW I don't want to start a flame war ;)

What about a great architectural quote?

?Architecture is music in space, as it were a frozen music? Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling

Art is a jealous mistress and if a man has a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture or philosophy, he makes a bad husband and an ill provider." Ralph Waldo Emerson

And one of my favourites...

"I was planning to go into architecture. But when I arrived, architecture was filled up. Acting was right next to it, so I signed up for acting instead. [On his college registration experience]? G. K. Chesterton

In fact I might add one to mine...

I'm not trying to start a flame war either, but I think the whole "architecture is frozen music" idea is about the most pretentious thing an architect could say.

Which of course is why its appearance doesn't surprise me in conjunction with a post about Macs.
