I was talking to my dad today about buying a new computer. we are both avid mac users, so we were talking about the value of the machine in terms of profitability. I told him I was purchasing a Mac-pro "quad 2.66, 1gig, 250gbs, x1900xt" it was a little over 3k in canadian with student discount. My dad being a laptop user says; "why don't you get a macbook pro?" --really throwing a wrench in my decision-- my question to the macrumors community is - does it seem a stupid decision to drop all of that computing power for portability at the same pricepoint? the 17" macbook pro comes in at around the same price with 2 gigs of ram.
