Hi I'm a graphic design student and Ive finally saved up enough cash to purchase my own apple computer. Im just wanting some advice on which path to take and what system to buy. I cant decide if i should buy a 27in iMac or a macbook and and an external monitor. I would prefer the iMac however i will be traveling next year for 6 months and would like to take a macbook over my current PC laptop. Would I be better to just get the Imac and suffer for the 6 months on the PC and university computers and benefit from the more powerful investment of the Imac. Sorry if I'm not making much sense but it has been a lot to get my head around.
