    The 2011 iMac 21.5" is faster than the 17" macbook pro, how does that work? :(

    Why are you surprised? I bought an iMac because I wanted the higher level, didn't you?

    Desktops are usually much faster than laptops, but laptops are great for those who need to take their work on the go.

    Which MBP are you talking about? Which 17" vs which 21.5"?

    From the same generation, I'd expect iMac to be more powerful than MBP, why don't you? IF Apple make iMac worse and worse, I wouldn't buy it anymore. Nor that I like MBP since it's not really that portable..

    And as you can see new MBA can easily overcome basic 13" MBP

    The 2011 versions, and hmm... I'm not sure whether to buy a Macbook Pro or an iMac next year, thoughts?

    I always love this question. The 100% deciding factor is, will you ever need to take your Mac anywhere else besides your desk? If you answered "Yes", buy the MBP. If you answered "No", buy the iMac.

    I suppose I can hook up the MBP to an external monitor/ACD anyway xD
