I’m hoping someone can help me! I am trying to decide which new Mac I should buy.

Which one PP CC 2015 (and after effects) will work better on. And I’m confused!!

I currently work on a Macbook Pro Retina mid 2012 with
2.6Ghz Intel Core i7 -
memory 8GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 -
Nvidia Geforce GT 650M 1024MB…

I am looking to EITHER get an iMac 5K retina with
4.0GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz -
32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4x8GB -
1TB Flash Storage -
AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4GB GDDR5 -

OR a Mac Pro with -
3.5GHz 6-core with 12MB of L3 cache -
16GB (4 x 4GB) of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC -
Dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM each.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!! I’m kinda lost…. I have a thunderbolt diplay so all is good there.

I am NO tech expert - and I have been confused by the differing opinions I've read online. So please be gentle :)

I look forward to your help :) Mel.

For now I would not recommend a mac for adobe Software. Try it on a pc and you'll see what I mean.
But if it must be a mac, I would prefer the iMac. You really don't wanna use the d700 gpu. It gets too hot. Result is white stripes in output or shutdown while rendering.
