While many owners do still have a lot of use for the MacBook Pro even in an age where the iPhone is capable of a lot of its core functionality on-the-go, I am curious what keeps those that leave their MacBook Pro on a desk or otherwise don't transport it out-of-the-house coming back to the powerhouse laptop. I am firmly in that camp, and will do what I can to avoid having to transport my MacBook Pro outside of the house for a number of reasons. But the biggest reason of all, and this applied to the iPad as well, is that I can keep my iPhone on me at all times so I know it's secure and that type of peace-of-mind just can't apply to a device that isn't pocketable. Nonetheless, I do find myself swooning over the new MacBook Pro even though I'd be better off with an iMac. It's unfortunate that Apple hadn't refreshed it at their October event because I may have already made the transition. I think the main reason many buy a MacBook Pro even if they don't need the portability is that it's Apple's flagship Mac. It's the face of the Mac with its iconic design, receiving all of the newest technologies and features first, integrated into one portable machine. Even if a certain subset of users don't take advantage of its portability, or battery life for the most part, it's still an attractive proposition. I think I could be happier with an iMac or Mac Pro setup, yet the new MacBook Pro has my attention even though I don't need the portability. So, why do you stick with a MacBook Pro?
