24 inch High end iMac vs High end 17 inch MacBook Pro (except 8GB of ram!) I want something that can last a few years preferably I want the MacBook Pro due to the fact if I need power I can take it with me but the iMac is cheaper and semi portable considering its a desktop. I have already made up my mind on getting an Air but I have had bad luck with computers and want to have two to make sure I can get something done if one stops on me etc. (MONEY ISNT A MAJOR ISSUE) ALSO whats the best way to keep them synced mainly just text documents and presentations. I have considered a macbook but when I went to the Apple store the displays seemed cheap ( not the best choice).
