    I'll be buying a new 27" iMac today, really excited! :)

    I have had a 13" 2010 MBP (for nearly a year now).

    What use do you guys give to equipment you don't use that often. I know I'll use the MBP when on-the-go. But here at home, anything special I can still do with the MBP? Will I just end up shutting it down? Any ideas are welcomed.

    Thanks!

    i use mine as media center and DVD player for my HD tv, control it with my iPad or iPhone... looks pretty neat when friends come by and watch me control the tv with my iPhone ;-)

    Keep it for if you ever go away, for use on the train or in the hotel, you're not gonna lug an iMac around are you? ;)

    One thing to be careful about - if you don't use it for long periods of time, don't let the battery do a deep discharge, it can damage the cells. Plug it in every so often to keep it healthy.
