    Hi,

    I currently have a 15" 2.4ghz Mac book Pro which is about 7 months old.

    I'm thinking of swapping it in for an iMac when the new ones are released..


    Do you Guys think thats a good idea?

    That' all on you.

    What do you need more?

    Portability?

    Screen real estate?

    It's fight between power and portability. If you want more power than your current MBP offers, get iMac. If you want to take your Mac to a friend or a vacation don't do anything, MBP is portable while iMac isn't. It's your decicion.

    I would say if you dont take your computer everywhere than take the imac. I have an iMac and I have no problem moving it around my house and it would be more powerful (but its three years old :()

    Yes, if you really want to have the new iMac and you can live without the portability. The MacBook Pro has a great resale value, especially one that new if it is in good condition. After resale, you would probably only spend a couple hundred dollars, or possibly none at all, for the new iMac. In the mean time you have a great machine to use.
