I cant afford a 20" right now but if there is a price drop as rumored then I guess I will be able to. I will only consider buying after the upgrade rolls out. So either I buy an iMac 17/20 which ever is available in my price range. Or I buy a Macbook and hook it up to an HDTV. I am not going to get involved with heavy graphics just very basic IF I do at all. But the dedicated graphic card seems to be a 'safer' option if I do need to do graphics (I dont expect to). I will mostly be web developing so I would appreciate a large screen. Would an HDTV be as good as a monitor? There resolutions are pretty good. Will a 720p display look pathetic like SDTV with a Macbook hooked up? I presume a 1080i would be screaming good? How would an iMac be a better choice? I would love the portability of the Macbook and the ability to hook up to an HDTV (without feeling guilty about not using the iMacs large screen). Also the market for used laptops is higher than desktps IMO. On the other hand I feel the iMac would be better performance wise, would give me breathing room and would last longer (much bigger HDD, dedicated graphic which is I have heard 30x faster). Please help me in deciding. If Apple rolls out a Macbook withan x3000 graphic card then I will most prolly go for the MB.
