Hey guys, I am going to university next year to do computer science (programming, &c), and I'm getting a new Mac. (I've made my decision, and this is what I'm doing. Please no comments on how I shouldn't bother upgrading.) I have the choice between two things: I could buy a 15" rMBP, or I could buy an iMac with an iPad. I'm going to wait until October so I can get the upgraded version of whatever, but I need your advice. I have a few questions: 1) Which combination should I get: rMBP, or iMac and iPad? 2) Are iPads actually any good for programming? I'm very sceptical about this, but I noticed a few apps on the app store that would do the bare minimum. I can spend at least £2000, and I have a university discount as well. If I bought what I wanted at the moment, it would cost me: £1856.20 for the iMac and iPad I want £1953.60 for the Macbook Pro I'd want Any advice? Update: I've made a decision: I'm buying an iMac, and not an iPad. I already have a functional MacBook Pro so I might as well run it down first, before upgrading it.
