    Heya everyone!

    I feel like I’m in a tough situation so I am calling on all of you for help. To start, I had a school issued :apple: macbook pro 2 years ago until the college I am attending forced me to give it up in exchange for a Lenovo (evil I know :mad:). In my school, your major decides your comp and because I switched… Anyway, now I want my mac back and I have enough money to do it. The problem is deciding what. So to sum it up:

    • I have a windows laptop that I MUST keep for at least 1.5 more years.
    • I do a lot of design work on the side (Adobe Suite and other design software)
    • I am a gamer
    • I will be probably be installing windows 7 on bootcamp
    • I am aiming to purchase an iPad 2
    • I will be using Office or something similar
    • I am looking at the 27 inch iMac and the 15 inch Macbook Pro at the moment.
    • I have a budget of less than $2000.

    I am open to all opinions and suggestions. Thanks, Roads8.

    iMac.

    You have a portable computer, why do you wan't another one?
    And also, there are plenty of threads that compare the iMac vs. the Macbook Pro. Before posting a thread (again) go ahead and check those out first.

    I understand that there are a lot of other threads dealing with the issue but most of them are outdated or have a different situation. Plus, if I were to go by most of them, I should get a macbook pro.

    Anyway, thank you for the advice.

    What are the specs of your current laptop and is it locked down (like restrictions on installing stuff, etc)

    it is a Lenovo T510, 320GB HD, 3GB RAM, Intel Core i5, 512MB NVIDIA Graphics Card. The only locks on it that I can't break (without repercussions ;)) is the fact that it is on a 32-bit system.
