I have an iPad that I love for its battery life/portability. I have no problem typing on it- I've actually written several essays on it as my PC laptop is dying. So now I can't decide if my PC's successor is going to be a MBP (after the coming update, mind you) or an iMac. Some background info: I am a college student that will soon enter the teaching workforce, either here or abroad. I mostly surf the web, check e-mail, etc., but I also do some heavy photo/video editing from time-to-time and need to run Parallels and Windows 7 as well. Oh, and I have been known to do some Java programming and BitTorrenting on occasion. It's also a possibility that I could be working as a school tech-specialist. SO, with that in mind, would it be better for me to get an iMac or a MBP? I kind of hated the size of my 15" PC, but with an iPad for portability, I could possibly stomach a 15" MBP. On the other hand, as I use ebooks on my iPad for the vast majority of my textbooks (it's so much cheaper!), I feel like having both an iPad and MBP out in class would be a little pretentious. But on the other hand, as I may very well be teaching abroad in a year or two (and I need whatever I get to last at least three years), the relative portability of a MBP may be a better option. And then there's the matter of money. I need to keep my purchase under $1400, though I could potentially spring for a low-end 15" MBP if the update is good. I'm feeling like the iMac would be a better bang for my buck, though the portability of the MBP (for school, work, and travel) keeps making me look its way. Opinions?
