Need to decide quickly on which MacPro to buy for editing with FCP, footage from the XDCamEX1R mainly 720p.
As well asmixed content from a number of sources e.g. MPEG2, MPEG MTS, flash, ...
What is most important: clock or cores?
Hard drives internal and/or external? SSD for system?
Westemere 3,33 6 core or 8-core Westemere 2,4 ?
16 Gb for sure.
monitoring output : not using Apple screen !?
