iMac and Air or Macbook Pro and Air

Is it weird to have two laptops? I run a lifestyle (read: predominantly fashion, but some food and travel as well) website and edit pictures quite a bit. People are saying that the 15" Pro with retina is excellent while others tell me that it's weird to have two laptops and that I should purchase the 21.5" iMac instead (it's cheaper, anyway, but no retina display). What would you suggest?

How often do you edit the photos on the go?

If you do it on the go, then you don't need the iMac. If you do it at home or office then iMac would be great!

To be honest, it doesn't make sense to have 2 laptops. Unless you're just so rich and don't know where to spend your money on lol.

Thirded on the iMac + Air options. Can't see much point to two laptops, if you're thinking that direction it would seem to make more sense to load up a MBP then get an iPad.

2 notebooks doesn't seem efficient

iMac+MacBook (whichever)

Have you considered maxing out the rMBP, and selling your current laptop?
