    So this past spring semester.... I had my 13.3" macbook air. I used it everyday and loved the size, but it was not "fulfilling" my wants and needs.

    I realized I wanted a desktop/ipad combo.

    at home, typing on it, I have my 27" iMac. Love the power, screen real estate, and everything.
    but....... Im considering selling my iMac for a 17" macbook pro.

    something something intuitive/clever... what are your thoughts?

    Id take the iPad to class and keep my iMac in my dorm. If i kept my iMac, my only 2 concerns would be damage from whatever/ and traveling with it.

    When I lived in college dorms, I don't think a 27" iMac would even fit on the desk! I guess times have changed.

    Have your family ship your iMac down to you insured if you are worried about damage in transit. I would somehow secure it using one of those computer security kits as well, no matter if you use a laptop or iMac.

    This. Mine barely held my old 13" Whitebook and a binder. Personally, I think you'd be better off with a Mini + 21-23" monitor plus the iPad.
