I just use my MBP for everything. I hook it up to a external monitor for photo editing. found out I need a new monitor, need one that can give me accurate color for printed photos. I am struggling with buying a Imac. Not sure I will like the glossy screen and printing issues? I like just having the one machine, easy to keep everything up to date, back up,, etc. Just wondering if others like using their laptop as a desktop too.?
