    Go for the imac, but keep in mind that macs weren't designed for gaming, but it sounds like that is more of a secondary use, so you should be fine.

    Assuming that the MacBook Pro you're talking about is the 15", I'd go for that.

    A 2 Ghz MacBook Pro with two gigs of aftermarket RAM ought to come to about $2200ish.

    The 20" iMac would come out to $1900ish.

    The Pro will hold its value a lot better over time, for one thing. And, in general, its just a nicer machine, I think, than the iMac.

    No you connect 1 monitor to it and also you the screen on the MBP. The screens can be mirrored or spanned(1 big desktop).

    If you can afford it, get the MacBook Pro.

    The convenience of portability is well worth it!
