View Full Version : Macbook or Imac

Oct 11, 2008, 04:55 PM
I have two PCs in my house, one in my parents room and 1 in a living room, which my brother uses.

I have a labtop in my room, its going pretty much down hill.

Would like to purchase my first imac. Something different in the house hold.

No gamming what so ever, i dont need the whole fancy works.
No serious photo or video editing. Not use for school.
Just a basic computer to search the web, DL music, burn cds, watch videos online etc...
Just a personal computer for my room.

Thinking about getting a 24" Imac refurb (might be to little big for me, but i'm sure its worth it)

Or a Macbook, but the screen is so small!
I can't think of anywhere i would bring it around....

sounds like an imac as you said you dont really need portability

how old are u? I ask this because it might help give you advice.

Anyway I say MacBook + external monitor. The MacBook will be great for times when you wanna browse on the couch or in bed, but is powerful and can be hooked up to a screen. You wouldn't regret having a portable.

Oh and of course wait till 14th for the MacBook update!
