I know there are a million threads on this, and I've read them all, but I'm still undecided. I have $2000 to spend. I am a computer science major and I need a laptop. I have a desktop PC which will remain as my default computer. I have a 22" monitor. The laptop will be used primarily for coding, Photoshop, Illustrator, and surfing the web/IM/email. I'll be taking it to school with me 4 days a week. I'd also like to dabble in iPhone and Mac software. Option 1 - Macbook I could purchase a standard MacBook for $1599 and use the rest of the money for accessories. If I go with the MacBook, which has a 13.3" screen, I would probably need to buy a keyboard, mouse, and display adapter so I could use it on my desktop monitor. I don't know if the 13.3" is big enough for heavy use. I'd add 2GB for a total of 4. I would also really like to have an iPhone. If I went regular MacBook I would have to decide between accessories and an iPhone. I'd like to have things like iWork, a backup drive, and MobileMe as well. Option 2 - MacBook Pro The MacBook Pro has the 15.4" screen and better graphics. But, it would take up all of my computer budget. I lust after the Pro. It's the one I want and, while I would be happy with either one, I really like the Pro. The larger screen really makes sense when it comes to coding and design. So, $2000 is the limit. Which option, either listed above or not, gets the most for my money? I'll be buying on Amazon (tons of Amazon credit + financing options) so there is no tax. Thanks.
