    Im buying a mac tonight and I need help deciding on which one to get!

    I am mainly going to be using it for garage band and pro tools with some gaming (counter strike source).

    Is a macbook sweet enough for this?


    THANKS

    probably not... the integrated graphics on the macbook really hinders that performance.

    It's also harder to play games on a 13" screen.

    MBP is more suited for casual gaming.

    The instant you said "gaming", you made your choice. That is, MBP. You're not going to get a satisfactory experience with the integrated graphics of the MP unless you're very undemanding.

    Definitely MBP if you're going to be doing gaming. If you leave a lot of apps open, as well, make sure you get quite a bit of RAM (1.5-2 GB would be good).

    for the apps that you listed i would say a 20" imac is good for you..you need screen real estate
