I use an intel iMac 20 (with extra 20" Lcd) as my main workstation at home. Recently I was considering getting a 17" MBP for travel - the cost would have forced me to sell the iMac. Instead, i bought a basically new 17 PB (1.67/hi Rez/120GB) for less than 1/2 what is was new). I do DTP, Office and web mostly. I find this an excellent combination. Not only do I get to keep my iMac, but I also have access to programs (OS9, etc) that won't run on the intel IMac, and Office and CS2 perform as well, if not better on the PB.
