Which Apple computer would be best for Graphic Design and Music recording/ Production?

I'm going to use a Scarlett 2i2 for my interface.
Its compatible with:

Mac 10.6
Requires OS X 10.6.5 or greater.

Mac 10.7

Mac 10.8

If garageband isn't as good as i thought i might use Reaper audio program.

For Graphic Design I will use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Maybe Flash and Indesign.

Any help would and can help! Need to know fast! Much appreciated!

    Depending on your budget, the best desktop computer to use would be the Mac Pro, note that you will have to also buy a Thunderbolt 4k display to go with it. Otherwise, an iMac would do fine.

    Alternatively, if you wanted to be a lot more portable, the Macbook Pro 15" w/ Retina would be very suitable.

    Keep in mind, you could buy Mac Pro/iMac and a Macbook Pro and be able to connect your data wirelessly via iCloud is also an option. Using OSX Mavericks, you can now use every Apple device seamlessly together. iOS 7 also now makes it easier and available to have this data on iPad Air/mini, iPod's and iPhones. In reality, your options are unlimited.
