I currently have a G5 Desktop and a late 2008 15" MacBook Pro. Looking to "replace" my desktop. Obvious choice in a MacPro, but I don't truly need one...like gaming (Diablo 3, anyone!!), but don't do any serious rendering, etc. The iMac...thinking about the 27", but for some reason I'm shying away. Looking for a couple thoughts on using 17" MacBook Pro as a replacement. I don't want to buy another Mac for...say...5 years (similar to my G5). I'd get the 2.5 i7 and upgrade the RAM (and I'll buy my own SSD...I can't stomach the Apple Store prices on those). Also thinking about getting a Thunderbolt Display. How will the 17" MacBook Pro handle that? No issues? I appreciate any thoughts....this is a cool site. Thanks.
