    What is the best hardware for working with huge Indesign files?

      I am currently working on a 2.3 GHz i7 MacBook Pro with 16 GB of ram, 500GB HD, running OSX 10.7.5

       

      Looking to purchase a new mac for graphic design, mostly Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.

       

      Problem with current mac is that I do a book layout, almost 600 pages, that will barely run, and won't perform Package at all. I know, I could split it up, but I'm running InData to create/update the book, and that's not feasible.

       

      Looking at either a Mac Pro, but it doesn't seem like CC (with the apps I use) takes advantage of the multiple cores?? or a 27" iMac. I already own a 27" Apple monitor, so getting the screen with the iMac isn't a plus...

       

      Opinions? Also interested in opinions on a 1TB hard drive, should I go Fusion or SSD?


      THANKS!
