    Hi,

    I have a 13 inch MacBook and I can't decide whether I should get a 15" MBP, 17" MBP, or a 27" iMac. I thought maybe you folks out there could help me. TO answer some of you questions that you may ask,

    I travel 1-2 times a year.
    I occasionally go around the house.
    One of the reasons I am asking is because I can't decide desktop or laptop.

    One of my questions are,

    Is the 17" too big to carry around?

    Thank you! Help much appreciated. If you have any more questions feel free to ask them (well this is a forum).

    Nothing. It will take me a while to save up the money. By the time I save up the money there will probably be something new and killer and the price will probably be lower. By then there will also be something wrong with it by then. Also I want something new and shiny. :D Edit: also my graphics card is inagrated and weak. Also need a faster computer.

    Ok, if you need to move around your house a lot, get the 17in Macbook Pro. Other than that, the 27in iMac would be the better choice because it is faster than the 17in Macbook Pro.
