Hey guys. Fairly new on here - posted in the iPhone thread (Awaiting my 4s!) and the MacBook Air one. So i've just become the (very) proud owner of an 11" MacBook Air - which has replaced my 2009 MBP. I love love love the Air - it is fantastic and runs just as well if not better than my Pro did for what I use it for. The idea was for me to hook the Air up to a Thunderbolt display and create a desktop setup. I like the fact that the TD provides me with extra USB ports and also gives me the option of a wired connection - which I would use. My problem - and no doubt many other peoples problem - is the price... Now, I'm in the UK and the TB Display is £899. A 21" iMac is £999. That's £100 difference between what is virtually just a screen, and a full blown desktop computer - that comes with the wireless keyboard and mouse. The peripherals will need to be bought if I buy the TB Display and these include the keyboard, trackpad/mouse and the CD drive for the Air. Those three things total around £180. So that takes the TB Display setup to around £1080 - which is obviously more than the iMac... When I bought my Air - I saw the TB Display and to be honest, I was blown away by the look of it. It is absolutely stunning. And I much prefer it to the 27" iMac. Think it's the black glossy and much thinner surround that is around the screen itself. I understand here that the TB Display is much bigger than the 21" iMac I am comparing it to... But I guess I'm struggling with the idea that for less money, I can get the complete Apple desktop that contains everything I need (including an SD Card slot that the 11" Air / TBD cannot offer). Being honest, 27" is probably more than is needed anyway. I just wasn't blown away on the idea of having 2 computers to sync music, photos to etc. It may be like comparing chalk and cheese - and I know no one can make the decision for me, but I wondered if there was anyone else who has been / is in this position and what they're thoughts are on the subject. Any help would be great!
