I've been using a 2011 3.4Ghz i7 with a standard eSata internal hard drive attached to a FW 800 RAID soley for Resolve training. Hopefully, the new MacPro's are coming soon....

If you're ok with Color's preview speeds on a laptop then you'll probably be happy with Resolve on an iMac for a machine that will only be used sometimes for grading (if the Ultra Studio I/O box ever comes out). The renders are pretty fast, even on an iMac. It's pretty impressive how good of a job they did using Open CL on the new version. Also, the On the Fly proxies seem to help.

The one big caveat is that you cannot use Resolve's noise reduction on the iMac because it requires a CUDA compliant GPU. You may also want to look at the Pegasus Thunderbolt RAID. It seems to be getting favorable reviews:

Good luck.
