    Hi all,
    next year I plan to take a computer to school, and I currently have a Dell XPS M1330. I also want a good enough computer to handle Call of Duty 6 (with boot camp).

    I'm wondering if it's better to go with the portable option of a MBP 13", or use my current laptop and get an iMac 21.5" which reaches the minimum specs of Call of Duty 6 (3.0ghz). What do you all think?

    I'm not just asking about Call of Duty, I'm asking if I should get a 21.5" iMac or a 13" MBP...

    What are your priorities? For what do you need the computer for?

    Then the 13" MB or 13" MBP does suffice your needs, spec-wise. You can always use an external display (up to 2560 x 1600) with it if you want.

    I don't know the specs of COD6, but I doubt the 13" MB/P will handle it satisfactory, I used a 17" MBP with a 9600GT to play it and it was alright.

    You need to decide one thing I guess, do you want portability or not. Because that is the difference that it comes down to.

    I wish :D.

    Thanks all, I'll go for the 21.5" iMac I think.
