Best Mac for making 2D and 3D Animation?

I need a computer that has the right hardware for making 2D and 3D animation, but I'm not to sure which one would be best.

    Mid to high end iMac or Macbook Pro will do fine. If you need to render animations in physically correct render engines such as V-ray or Maxwell Render a Mac Pro (or a render farm service) would most likely be necessary.
    However most motion graphics animation is done without physically correct engines (or sometimes even GI) so you could get away with it nicely if you choose carefully based on the recommendations of your softwares manufacturer.
