First post, so forgive me for missing any topics that might have covered this. I looked, and nothing seemed to be similar. Here's my situation: I'm happily making the move to Mac from Windows. I've done my homework and test drives and can't wait. I have read the advice to wait until WWDC to buy, which works out fine for me since I will be purchasing in late August at the earliest but it could be into September as well. Without knowing what WWDC will bring, would I be better served getting a loaded 17" MacBook Pro for about $2,600 (edu discount) or a 17" iMac AND a MacBook for about the same price give or take $100 or so? Portability ranks pretty high for me as I'm a faculty member at a school and have about 4 1/2 months off a year to travel and see friends. The uses of my computer are the usual suspects of internet, email, chat, word processing, etc. The most intense stuff would be iPhoto (maybe Aperture one day!), iMovie and iDVD as I take a lot of video of the kids, dog, etc. That said, could I get by with an iMac to do that stuff at 'home' and have the MacBook to take around with me? Will the MacBook still be able to handle iMovie, iDVD at a lesser basis or will I wish I had the MacBook Pro when I'm away for a few weeks? Is there anything anticipated on the horizon that will take me a new direction than any of these? My gut tells me to get the loaded MacBook Pro, but my head says that the flexibility of two computers has a huge upside to having almost the best of both worlds. Any thoughts? Thanks.
