I am going to be a film student at BU next year and I am trying to decide what to do with my computer setup. I currently have a 17" mbp 2.8 ghz intel core two duo. I also have an iPad 2 64 gb, and iPhone 4. And I am looking to replace my macbook sometime soon. I really like the new iMacs, 27" maybe... Is that too big? And what about 3rd party secondary SSDs? If i went that route I would want to spend under $200. I could also wait until next year to see what the macbook pro redesign looks like, but if I got a imac this summer I could sell it later on and just get a new comp. Also what about the new mac pro expected to come out? My budget is really sub $2200. But the essential question is will the iPad and iMac work for me in college? Or will I need a macbook pro to take to my classes. I can do most of my work on my iPad, and I can do a vnc back to my mac and have done that to get things, but I won't be able to do editing and photoshop and that junk. Thanks. *Update* Yes I would be selling my Macbook Pro if I get any new mac. And I will not sell my iPad.
