First off, I have really been wanting a 13 inch macbook pro. However I just feel like I will be spending more money than I want to. I am planning on selling my 17 in core duo iMac but would keep it if I could spend about 300 less than the baseline pro. Here is what I was thinking. http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-portege-r705-p25/4505-3121_7-34121943.html I also thought of the Alienware mx11, I need something portable and with some power. The hdmi ports would save money on cables as I plan on using a Vizio as an external monitor. If I went this route I would have the horsepower of the window machines and could keep the iMac as a media...hub...thing. Of course I would have to put Linuix on the thing for when I want to be really productive. I also need windows every once and a while so that's another 120 if I go with the MBP. What would you guys do? I game a little but the pro would be ok, that's why the video card ain't gotta be crazy.
