    Hey guys,
    Currently on the latest generation Macbook Air 13 base unit - no upgrades.
    At the moment my set-up is with the thunderbolt display - but the size differences between the air display and the thunderbolt has me wanting to couple it with another display - so have two with the air in clamshell mode.

    BUT. There's a (gaming) niggling part of me that doesn't want to upgrade my xbox 360 to a one and instead get a iMac 27 instead of another thunderbolt display.
    Another dilemma I have is that I could buy, three LG wide-screen 21:9 displays, for the price of my existing thunderbolt display - and then save the money for a mac pro.
    A friend is selling one cheaper and i'm ever so slightly tempted.

    But then I have the issue of continuity in data over the desktop and the laptop...
    Thoughts?
    Shall I just get another display /or/ replace for LG displays + Mac Pro /or/ iMac ?

    I'm rather undecided - probably because i know i shouldn't spend my spare time gaming - perhaps the only reason i would want the iMac - but then again the Mac Pro can run 6 external displays.

    THANK you for your thoughts!

    Varies

    It varies. Some video editing projects come up. But more consistently photo editing and otherwise browsing/productivity programs for research in my line of work.
    Usually with the necessary news programs running in the background.

    Intensive work does come about - and the speed does of course wane in those moments - but not consistently graphic heavy.

    I've faced this dilemma in the past as well. Although I always end up wishing I still had something portable.

    Currently I've got a great gaming desktop(although it's not a Mac), and I really miss having a portable. I don't really use it for gaming like I have in the past, so I've been shopping for a MacBook Air to replace the MBP I gave away about a year ago.
