So here's the story. I have two Macs. A 20" 2.4Ghz C2D iMac (800Mhz fsb, 4GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, ATI 2600 PRO from 2007) that I've had since late 2007 and a 13" 2.0Ghz Polycarbonate MacBook (1066Mhz fsb, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB 7200rpm HDD, Nvidia 9400M) that I recently got this year to replace an aging 12" G4 iBook. I've fallen in love with having a modern capable portable machine again ever since getting the MacBook. The problem, though, is that ever since then the iMac has been a bit neglected, and to me, it seems like a bit of a waste of money just sitting there on my desk. I find it hard to justify having a machine just lying around not rarely being used so I was thinking of selling the it. Now to supplement my desk and large screen needs I was planning on getting a Dell 2408 to pair with the MacBook. The larger screen space would primarily help when editing RAW images (I take pictures as a hobby with a Canon 5D classic) and scanned images from 120 film negatives in CS3 though I may update to CS4 sometime soon. This way I have a much larger screen on my desk with roughly the same computing power I had in the iMac + I have the option of taking the MacBook on the go. I'd lose out on .4Ghz of CPU power, internal hard drive space (though this isn't that big of a deal since I have a lot of external firewire storage), and a FW800 port. So here's my question. To me, on paper, it seems like I should be able to make do with just having a MacBook but I was hoping for some of your opinions. To those of you who have both a Mac Laptop ad Mac Desktop: Do you find it useful to have two machines? To those of you who only own a laptop and use it as your main machine: Do you regret only having a laptop? How is only having a laptop working out for you? To those of you who have made a similar move (IE: gone from a dual machine setup to a single laptop setup): What are your thoughts on your move? Do you like it or do you have any regrets? On top of that, do any of you think it's necessary for me to move to a MacBook Pro (Keep in mind I need some sort of Firewire port so it's either the polycarbonate or the Pro)? If so, why? Thanks in advance, guys. tl;dr: I have an iMac and a MacBook but feel like I could get by with just the MacBook. Should I sell the iMac?
