computer upgrade for a new teacher

hi all- i just started a position as a lazy teacher and would like to upgrade either/or my 2006 pc laptop or my 2006 classroom dell desktop. I don't need to do both... but I have an imac and iphone and will probably end up using an ipad in there someday.

In my free time i mess around with ableton live and some photo editing programs, but my understanding is that an MBA can pretty much handle this at this point. my question is: what should I get?

I realize it is kind of loaded. I've thought of going for an mba, a used mac mini that i would hope can work with the monitor at my school... or even replacing my school desktop with my old laptop (would be an upgrade) so i can go dual display when i'm drowning in data collection spreadsheets. what do people think of that one?

You could sell the iMac and your Dell pc to help pay for an Air, if portability is what you want. As for the Dell classroom PC, let your boss pay for an upgrade to that.
