          <div>I feel like a Mac Pro isn't super cost-effective for
            this. But if you want to run OS X under virtualization, it'd
            do more than a Mini or something...I just don't know how
            much it matters. IMHO, what OS X is good at (video/audio
            creation/editing, etc.) doesn't work well under
            virtualization anyway. There's often too much hardware to
            pass-through and the RAM and real-time processing
            requirements are too high. <br>
