So I guess my question for you today... is ACD > 2 24" LED Monitors If yes, than is it so much better, that it's worth missing out on a macbook air? Just because I figured you might ask "well... it depends, what do you have already, how important is a macbook to you" $1,000 to me is crazy. Here's my current situation... I have $800 coming from amazon. I'm going to get the core i5, 2gb ram, 500gb mac mini, use my 2TB External (I'm a photographer) with it, get a disc drive, and upgrade to 8GB of ram for $100 from crucial. After that, my wallet will be empty. I have a laptop under bestbuy warranty that cost me $1,000, it's been sent of to repair 3 times, so if something goes wrong again (which it will-_-) then I'll have $1,000 store credit. I was thinking of getting a macbook air, I think it'd be an awesome addition to my set up. When I go to friends, school, vacations, etc I have a nice laptop. It has enough memory for a few days, then I transfer any pictures, or other data I gathered during the days onto my desktop at home (mac mini) Orrrr I could take that $1,000 and get a apple cenima display?! Are they really that good? I have a 24" Asus LED monitor, and I might get a second one and run an extended desktop.
