Ok, like I said I finally have some cash to spend but I still want to be practicle. I am deffinatley interested in a macbook because I need the mobility that the 13" screen will give me since I will use it out of the house almost everyday. Now my main question is what should I do for a desktop? I really feel like an imac is what I need, but for some reason im just not sure about how I feel about the overall look of it. I know that sounds kind of silly and everyone seems to love them, but im really drawn to those 20" apple cinemas. Then the problem that comes into play is I really dont have the space for a mac pro nor do I need all of that power. I really need like a 128mb graphics card in a mac mini and I would be set with that and a 20" and a lower priced macbook. But now im stuck because they only have the integrated 64mb graphics. And I would like to play some command and conquor when it comes out. What do you guys suggest I do? I currently have a 15" 1.67ghz powerbook so I guess just keeping that and getting an external is an option, but then I lose the portability that I would get from the 13" macbook and I wolnt be able to use boot camp since its an older model. Let me know your ideas. Thanks.
