    I have a 2011 MacBook Pro and I sorta want some additional display real estate for Photoshop and video editing so I really want to get an external display for my MacBook Pro.

    The previous gen. 27" iMac (refurb) costs: $1269
    -3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    The current Apple LED Cinema Display (refurb) costs: $849

    If the iMac and ACD have the same display then, I think I'm getting a pretty good computer for only $400 instead of just a display. At least on the iMac I can do some of the work I could be doing on my MacBook Pro (Photoshop, Googling, Papers).

    I'd love to hear your input on this.
