Well i have always been contemplating between desktop and laptop. And they originally started at thinking MacBook Pro vs. 24" iMac but now I have been thinking a 20" iMac vs. MacBook (white) top of the range ) I will roughly have about £1000 to spend so as you can see why i chose the 20" iMac, I mean i really like the whole idea of having a 1680x1050 res and an all in one looking computer on my desk, but recently with my laptop i have been enjoying a little bit the freedom of having the mobility of it. I am going into college next year and they have iMac's there so i could just store my files on a usb drive and take them in so i wouldn't necessarily need the portability at least not until uni anyway. So i would like to have some information and guidance i suppose on the decision, I will be buying in about August time hopefully when the new revisions have come out by then if they are. I will be using the computer which ever one it to be for graphic design: photoshop, ilustrator and maybe some inDesign, also will use it for slight video editing and dvd burning and the usual adium, safari and iTunes and i will use it for photography so i would most likely get into using aperture maybe. From what i told you what you recommend me in purchasing to last me about 1 - 2 years until uni??? Thanks for any help, Jordy.
