iMac or MacPro?

After a very long absence, I am back with my (hopefully more regular) updates and musings regarding technology, travels and my photography. For those of you who used to read my posts back in 2008, welcome! For those newcomers, I’m glad that you have found this site. I hope that it is a fun and exciting place to frequent and learn new things.

I’m going to jump right in talking about a new Mac. I was wondering whether or not to wait and purchase the MacPro or if I could get a top-of-the-line iMac for the same price. I copied my results from today’s price check and GeekBench results below.

I think I am going to wait until the MacPros release. I can’t afford the 6-core, but if I save all of my shekels; I think that I can manage the quad-core, which should be unbelievable!

What are your thoughts, given the specs above? If you had $3k and (for the sake of argument were to purchase a Mac) which model would you go with?
