    i am looking to possibly change my computer set up, right i use a MBP hooked up to an 22' LCD. here is the specs of the MBP

    2.16 C2D
    4gb rahm
    300gb HD
    graphics:ATI Radeon X1600:

    i am thinking of getting this imac

    Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme

    2GB memory
    500GB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory

    how much of an upgrade would the imac be?

    i would upgrade the memory on the imac too...

    The only way in which you MBP out performs the iMac is RAM, and you can bump the iMac up to 4 GB. The iMac is a significantly more powerful computer. But if you still need portability I would not suggest swapping. You MBP will do everything the iMac can, just a bit slower.
