ok.. so the the iMac desktop computer runs at $1299 with nothing else installed. with 1 gig of RAM and iwork, it is $1478. HOWEVER: with the macbook, it starts at $1099. with the same gear as the imac, it is a mere $1278. i am willing to save the extra 200 bucks. but i really only need this computer for basic things(microsoft office stuff like word) and artist-ey type stuff(IE: photoshop and paint shop pro X) i would mainly do the art at my home, but say i get an idea on the road. what will i do then?
