    ...that's a huge difference in computing power if you're talking about one of the i(X) models of iMac processor compared to the whitebook...

    Also, there's lots of good monitors out there cheaper than the ACD that you could hook up the whitebook too...

    If you need portability...a MacBook Pro and a cheaper monitor. If you don't need portability, the iMac.

    I agree, if portability is a factor, this is the best option

    24" Apple monitor might be the last on my list of 24" screens, but maybe the most expensive.

    iMac by a mile unless you need portability, far more powerful and larger screen!
