I've got a dilemma regarding the MacBook Pro and iMac. All I can afford of either is the base model. So, 13" Dual Core i5 MBP. Is that computer equipped enough to handle moderately sized photoshop files quickly? What about handbrake? That's about the extent of what I'll be doing that will actually tax the computer. I would also hook up to a 21" 1080 Vizio TV at home to compromise not having the iMac. I would say portability is somewhat important, but I could probably get by without.
