I'm a high school student and we are starting a TV studio at school. Should we get a mac pro or IMac?

We'll be doing pretty much everything on a green screen and chromakeying it out. We also want to be able to do recording and things like that too.
I want the mac pro b/c i can put pci audio inputs in it and it seems like it will be faster rendering as to save class time. also would it be worth it to get a second computer to do audio/recording on one while video editing on the other? and if so would you recommend two mac pros or would two imacs be okay? any help would be great

    Two iMacs would be cheaper and almost as fast, but it doesn't include the PCI audio, so I would recommend a Mac Pro and a iMac.

  • If you are doing this at school it would seem more sensible to buy 2 x MacBook Pros with retina display as is the most up to date and portable. There is nothing wrong with getting an IMAC but portability would be an issue.
