    We’ve got three computers here at home:
    • A windows Pentium4 with 512MB RAM and a 17”LCD (
    • And a windows laptop (HP ze2070, Pentium M 735 1.7GHz and 512MB RAM)
    I’ll replace one of them with a Mac and I only need a laptop occasionally for viewing documents and e-mailing. So I was wondering whether I should buy
    * a MB 2.0GHz with 2GB RAM and attach my 17”LCD and a keyboard+mouse to it and use it mainly as a desktop (the old PC-laptop moves to my parents)
    *or a new20" iMac with 2GB RAM (and my old P4 moves to my parents)
    After the latest updates from the iMac, the iMac looks “more for less money” to me
    I use my computer mainly for entertainment, writing papers and some small web design.
    I’m still a student (first year university) from Belgium but I’ll won’t need a laptop very much for school

    If you dont really need a laptop then I would buy the iMac. More bang for the buck and just recently updated to the Core 2 Duos so more future proof.

    get rid of everything and buy a MacBook PRO.

    the power of a desktop, in a sleek, portable delight....

    Considering what you use the laptop for, the iMac seems to be the obvious choice.

    I say Go for it!

    If you don't need portability then definitely go for the iMac.
