    If you sell your MacBook, then you give up its portability. So I would ask you, how important is being able to sit on the sofa and use your MacBook? Personally, I would keep the MacBook and get the 20" iMac.

    ...same, I have the Nvidia 9400M whitebook and an iMac 8,1 prev gen and they are both very good machines... I wouldn't trade them for 1 24" iMac and I have 3 other winXP laptops and a winXP desktop in my house as well = no shortage of computers here...

    DEfenitly get the 20 inch. Your not losing much screen size. Plus you get the portability of the macbook. If your like me you dont mind sitting down on the computer, but pefferably you would be on the couch, in bed, or a hotel room. If, however, you do not need the portability, go for the upgrade. But if you like any use of portability whatsoever ( i personally like playing wow from my bed) then stick with your macbook and get the 20 inch

    You didn't say why you want a iMac. Is it power, bigger screen, etc.?

    If it's just a bigger a screen you could consider just keeping your computer and get an external monitor.
