    Apple needs lower prices! i want a macbook pro, but its so expensive. im torn. For the price of the macbook pro with the upgrades i need, i could get a FULLY loaded 20" iMac with 2Ghz intel Core Duo processor. decisions decisions. i would definitely use the notebook for the portabilitybecasue i go back and forth between houses every few days. However, the power that even a lower imac would provide would be great for my image editing, itunes collection, and web surfing. I also like the larger screen for doing projects in word. please give your opinion! base Macbook pro, or upgraded iMac?

    Thanks :D

    I'd vote for the laptop because I hate being tied to one place.

    I vote MacBook Pro

    I got my macbook a few weeks ago. I'm truly amazed at its power. I intend on using Pro Tools in May, and forsee no issues. Get your hands on one, and you'll need no second opionion.

    - Maybe hold out for next revision, or faster, bigger Pro.

    I always go for laptops. However, I don't do anything computer-intensive so I don't need the power of a desktop. I'm on the road alot too so being able to take it with me is nice.

    Between the two systems, I would go for the MacBook Pro even though it is more expensive.
