So next year I am going to be a Freshmen in University and am going to be going for an industrial design major. For about the price of a high end MacBook Pro, I could get a Lenovo X220i for about $750 and a 27 inch iMac for $1500. Lets just say that the new 27 inch iMac is the exact same except for it's faster. With the X220i with the 9-cell battery I get about 12 hours of battery, and the Core i3 processor is fast enough for basically anything except for CPU intensive tasks. That is OK because that is what the iMac is for. A couple questions: -Does this seem like a good plan? -Does the Core i3 2310M come with the same graphics as the Core i5s and i7s? -What is needed to have the X220i drive the iMac as an external monitor? -Would it be possible to drive the iMacs Snow Leopard OS onto the X220i for when I'm on the go and I have internet connection? -Is the iMac included in the free iPod Touch promo? Hopefully the iMacs come out soon and are awesome!
