Should I get an iMac or a Macbook pro
I am a designer of print, web, apps and sometimes video. I often have very large files and would like to get a computer that is trustworthy and fast. I currently have a late 2010 I-mac and a 2012 macbook air. Both of which cant handle the large files I am working with.
Should I go with the new iMac fully upgraded or the Macbook Pro fully loaded?
Also as a note I do not care about portability.

Get the Mac with the best video card that you can afford. The new 27" iMac can be upgraded with a 2 GB video card, upgraded to an i7 processor, and 32 GB of RAM. The new 21.5" iMac has a weak video card that cannot be upgraded. The laptops are not as upgradeable as the iMacs, and will overheat when you try to do advanced graphic work on them.

It depends, really. If you are on the go, and work in multiple places, then go with the Macbook Pro. If you do your work at home, then the iMac may be a better buy.
