I own a 15" MBP late 06'. For what I need it for (internet, word docs, listening to music, movies) it still runs well but it has slowed down over time. I just graduated college and will be back home for a long time saving money. The MBP was convenient for the college life, but often never left my desk unless it was a few rare occasions. I am thinking about upgrading and the Imac keeps catching my eye (the baseline 27"). My justification is that I have an Iphone 4 so if i desperately need to access email, internet, etc. I can do so on that device and have my main powerhouse Imac at home. My question: Anyone else been in a similar situation going from a laptop to a desktop, because usually its always the other way around these days.
