I need help deciding for my next computer set up for college and recently sold my old MacBook pro 13. My options are an iMac and laptop ( like a 11.6-13 inch Dell ) or just a 15" MacBook pro i5. I am not sure about getting an iMac because I'll be in a dorm. I think a 15" MBP will be overkill for portability as I liked the 13" size. However, I must have an I-series processor because I do video and photo editing. The 15" pro costs $1800 or I can get a refurbished iMac for $1019 for all of my editing and an affordable small laptop for about $500 just for note taking, web browsing, social networks, and music. I am leaning towards the iMac and laptop because I like to be portable and an iMac will give me the processing power I need. I also don't mind having two computers with two different operating systems.
