    and I'm in the market for a new computer.

    I'm looking at either the Imac 21.5" or the Macbook Pro.

    I'm mainly going to be using the computer for music management, browsing internet, data management, and some photo editing.

    Also, what are the best promotions going on right now? I have a AMEX card and have heard if you purchase a mac with the card they extend the warranty by a year. Anyone have any success with this?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Forget the computer 'choice' Ryan - take the money to Vegas - put it all on 12 RED - then buy both! :D

    Seriously - DON'T BUY EITHER - have another look at MacRumor's Buyer's Guide - AND WAIT FOR JUNE 7th - like the rest of us :apple:

    LOL!

    I read that guide and saw that the latest Macbook Pro was just released. I also saw that the latest Imac was released in October 2009.

    What are you guys expecting besides the new iphone?????

    The iMac may be updated, but the MBP won't be changed. So if you are leaning towards the MBP, go for it, of if you are looking at the iMac, definitely wait.

    For your purposes, either machine will be more than enough. You'll get more bang for your buck with the iMac though.

    I am tired of waiting to get mine. I say FORGET about WWDC '10 if you are getting a MBP since there shouldn't be any update to MBP anyways... since they already did in April.

    No matter rain or shine, I am SOOOOOO getting my MBP tomorrow morning @ 10am sharp. :D
