I think that getting a 27" ATD to connect to your 15" MBP would be the best solution

Well, if you have that monitor set up where you use your MBP/where you would use that new iMac, I would suggest just connecting the MBP to the monitor and using it as a desktop with a keyboard and mouse that way. Unless you are performing extremely graphics intensive tasks you really won't see a difference you may be upgrading to a slightly faster CPU too but the fact that you have the option to pick up your laptop off sets that.

Yup, been doing that for a while now; I use the monitor itself to game

I'd keep that setup as is if I were you, but that's just me.

By the way I have the same Logitech Z313s!

Bingo. I have an iMac, and I just don't want a desktop as a primary workstation. I'm getting a MBP - if I had the money I'd get a TB display but I'm keeping the iMac.

I got mine for $30 too, I really like them, they're nice and small but can go pretty loud without distorting.
