    I am looking at getting a 2.93GHz iMac with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 256MB memory but I was just wondering what would be the performance difference between that and the 2.66GHz as then I could go for a 13" MBP too.

    I know the price difference between the 2 isn't the value of a MBP but as my mother will be getting me this on finance (with me paying the monthly payments), I'm just wondering if it's worth paying an extra £400ish and getting a slower iMac and a MBP too.

    I will be using the iMac (and MBP) for Web Development, etc and Image Editing/Flash, etc.

    I don't think that it is really worth it to buy both. It sounds like a dedicated graphics card would be useful to you. I'd either get the 2.93 iMac or the 2.66 MBP.

    I see no need for 2.93GHz iMac, but I don't recommend to buy two computers at the same time, unless you get a discount. Buy iMac now and MBP later on, IF YOU NEED IT.

    Thanks, I've decided to go down the Hackintosh root for now (hardware permitting) and then will save a bit more to get the machine I really want.
