Okay after much consideration, I've decided that I will be getting another Mac. But here's my problem - I can't decide if I want a 24" iMac or a 17" MacBook Pro! Here are some things I will be using it for: Mass storage of TV shows and music, for streaming to my Xbox360 (until I get my iTV!) Photoshop. Lots of Photoshop. Ardour (a free multi track audio mixing program) Everyday stuff, like web surfing, etc. What I can't decide on is if the monitor on the iMac is more suited for photo editing than the one on the MacBook Pro. Then again, I would love to be able to take my computer places. I can use an external harddrive for storing the TV shows, that's no big deal at all (because if I get the MacBook Pro, I'll definitely be getting the 100gb 7200RPM drive ). Basically it comes down to this: Do I want a big monitor and more harddrives space, or do I want mobility? I will definitely be waiting until AFTER the 9th, so no worries about that.
