    Do you need portability? No = iMac. Yes = MacBook.
    Do you play 3D games? No = MacBook. Yes = iMac.

    If you buy a Mac between now and Friday 26th, The new OS will cost you $9.95 and come as an upgrade. If you buy after next Friday, the new OS will be included as an extra disk with your new Mac. A couple of weeks later, all new Macs will be loaded with the new OS.

    I own a MacBook and let me tell you, it is not good for gaming

    If you don't game then get a MacBook. There's really little it cannot do.

    This thread is like trying to compare tomatoes with potatoes, people would be able to be more helpful if it was between a Macbook or Macbook Pro, or between a Mac Mini or iMac but your trying to compare two things that are totally different and have been designed for two totally different things,
