Okay.. So I am in a bit of a dilemma. I am going to be purchasing a new mac in a couple weeks and would like to see what macrumors thinks first. First Option: 15" 2.53 GHz Macbook Pro + Display later along the road Second Option: $599 Mini + 17" Dell Studio (large screen for traveling, still maccin' at home ) Third Option: $1700 w/ rebate Macbook Air. The speed of an SSD sounds awesome, but I could always upgrade the HD when prices come down in Option # 1. My high end budget is $1600-$1700. I would be using an edu or military discount on the mac, and the more you spend the more you save so... I mainly web browse, iTunes, light gaming in Windows, do homework in pages etc. very "light" stuff IMO.
