Mac Pro

So I've been using this beast for a week now, and have I got a ton to report!

First of all, this machine is BLAZING fast. It takes literally 2 minutes to render an entire sequence that would have taken my poor 800Mhz PowerBook hours to process. Also, I've noticed that a few more format options have become available in FCP 5.1 (the Universal binary). For example, I can easily work with uncompressed 1080p video files.

Speaking of HD video, I downloaded three HD trailers from Apple's Quicktime gallery, and played them at the same time. I expected the system to bog down a bit, so I opened up Activity Monitor while I played the streams. While all three HD videos were playing, Activity Monitor showed only 68% of the processor being used.

Now that I've talked of all the good news...

This machine crashes, a lot. It has crashed at least once a day for the last week. I believe I know what the problem is, yet it has slowed down my FCP projects (some of which are school assignments) BIG time.

I have reason to believe that the issue is:
- Running my completely legal version of Final Cut Pro.
- Boot Camp, which I installed the second day. I haven't installed Windows yet though.
- An 80GB SATA drive I installed the first day, which gives me some crap in Disk Utils.
- I'm just too retarded, and am overburdening the system when I try to run to run 8 streams of video, FCP, GarageBand, iTunes, Parallels Desktop, BitTorrent, Firefox, LiveType, and CoD 2 all at the same time while backing up 120GB worth of data.

  • Yeah, that 22" BenQ cost all of $279 after rebate. Too cheap to be true.

    Its a pretty badass screen, considering the price. Native resolution is 1680 x 1050 and the color could not be more accurate. It is one beautiful display for progressive HD.
