Guys, just want some advice. Currently I have a 15" macbook pro and a 24" Cinema display since using this set-up can go back to single screen!

Thinking of either getting the big 27" or a base model 21.5" and keeping the 24 cinema display as extended monitor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Any thoughts on the sweet spot of the imac lineup? seems either base model or top model to me

What kind of power do you see yourself needing?

My gut says to go with the 21.5" option, unless you're going to pick up a core i5 or i7 option with the 27".

can't have too much power i suppose. My 2.4 unibody is basically powerful enough for my needs although is I am doing intense graphic work on iwork 09 programs it tends to hang a little.

The 27" just seems massive!

I'm sure you know this, but the 27'' is the only one that can take video in.
