I have a feeling this question has been asked to death, yet I suppose everyone has different situations. I'll be heading off to college next fall and as of right now I have a 1.8Ghz PowerMac G5, which I know will not last me through the next 4 years. What would be the better option? iMac+Netbook or MacBook Pro I'm afraid I would be paying too much for too little power in the MacBook Pro compared to the iMac, yet then I loose the portability factor with the iMac(hence adding on a cheap netbook). I mostly work with Photoshop, After Effects, iPhoto, Internet, Music, etc. and I'm just much less familiar with the newer intel processors than I was during the IBM era. Can anyone help me out?
