    Ok.. currently I have a 2.33ghz C2D 17" Macbook Pro I am selling it because it is to big for the portability I need. With the funds I want to get an iPhone and Asus Eee PC this leaves £700 for a new desktop.

    The desktop needs to be as powerful as the Macbook Pro. Which one should I get for £700?

    I will be able to claim the VAT back and get Edu discount if this helps.

    i'd go with an imac, you can also get the mac mini but you will get more for your money with an imac, :)

    As a believer in getting the best machine you can afford, and if you want a new one and a desktop machine, it means possibly either getting:

    • the stock 20" 2.4ghz iMac with 1gb RAM iMac if the edu discount can cover that or...
    • the 20" 2.0ghz iMac with some money saved for some additional RAM which is always a good thing. This machine also has a smaller hard drive.
