    Do you want mobility? If so then MBP. If not, iMac. Simple really.

    For me i would go for 13', since i own 15'. Can take to anywhere. For imac option, i would prefer plug into a bigger monitor then use it. It really depends what you want. :D

    I think i want portability so MBP it is

    Is it worth spending £250 extra to have the 2.7 i7 instead of the 23 i5 ?

    HD size is irrelevant as i will bung an SSD in it one day

    Okay fair enough :)

    Hope I don't make a mistake by opting for the MBP over the air!!

    Well you always sell the MBP on if it doesn't meet your needs, you're used to doing that, no? :p

    They are totally different computers-- one is a laptop and the other is a desktop. If you require to take your computer with you, take the MBP. Otherwise, I would get the iMac any day.

    I have an iPad to use around the house but quite often would be useful to have full functionality away from that for example word/excel/photoshop etc .. So I guess it's useful
