Ok I was originally planning to wait for a new MBP rev. to come out, but now im having second thoughts. I don't have any idea which mac to buy now. Portability to me is as important as desktop power so they are both equally important. Also, screens are important. So now I've narrowed it down to 6 equally priced choices (w/ education discount). My limit is $1800. 1. Default low-end MBP = $1799 2. Custom Macbook Mid-range Macbook w/ 2GB RAM & 100 GB HD = $1784 3. Semi-custom default Macbook w/80GB HD + 20" Apple Cinema Display = $1793 4. Customized high-end iMac w/ 1GB RAM and 256VRAM = $1757 5. Customized High-end Mac Mini w/ 1GB RAM and 120GB HD + 20" ACD = $1681 6. Customized low-end Mac Mini w/ 80GB HD and SuperDrive + 23" ACD = $1768 As you can see, I am kinda leaning toward notebooks, but if i get the MBP i plan to wait for the next rev.
