    Hi, what's the best way to spend my money, I already have an iPad 2 but have £1500 that I want to spend on apple products, do I get:


    Low end 13" MacBook pro and low end mac mini.

    Low end 13" MacBook air and iPhone 4s

    Low end 15" MacBook pro and iPod touch

    High end mac mini i7 and 750gb and iPhone 4s

    MacBook air i7 256gb 13"

    As you can tell I have a few options that I can spend my money on, I am not going to tell you what my needs are, but what you think is the best hardware there for the money, almost anonymous.
    Thanks Connor

    These questions get asked all the time.

    First reply will be, what do you plan to do with these devices?

    I don't think you need 2 Macs so the best option would be low end 13" MacBook Air and iPhone 4S :D
    You might want to wait for a month or two, the new Macs will be release soon.

    Where can I get a base 15" and iPod Touch for £1500? The base 15" is £1549 if I remember rightly.

    Bit of useless thread in this case.

    Anyway, 13" for portability or 15" for CPU/GPU intensive tasks.

    My mum gets a 10% discount at the store where she works ;D

    ----------

    And as I stated earlier, what would you get and why? I don't want you to know what I'm going to do because I'm happy with any of the combinations

    I'd get a Mini and a 13" MBP, that's what I have and it works good :)

    I'm thinking of that as I get the portability and power

    Question 1: Do you need an Apple notebook at all when you have an iPad?
    If YES, then proceed to Question 2. If NO, then go with Option 4.

    Question 2: Do you need a desktop computer at all if you already have a notebook?
    If YES, then go with Option 1. If NO, then proceed to Question 3.

    Question 3: Are you willing to sacrifice upgradeability for extra portability (MBA vs MBP) when you already have an iPad?
    If YES, then go with Option 2. If NO, then go with Option 3.

    What you need/want matters -- not what we need/want. If the specifics really don't matter then just roll a die to pick.

    Get a MBP 13" and save the rest of the money.
