    I personally didn't go from an iMac but from a normal desktop and a ultraportable to my MacBook and I can tell you it's much better. Having to update files on both was a hassle. Unbelievable how annoying that was. Plus, I found myself hardly using the desktop because laptops are just so much more convenient to use anywhere you want. My suggestion is either just stick with your MacBook or if you need the power go Pro.

    IMO, a netbook is a fun toy type of computer, but I'm not too fond of reading the news/forum posting on such a small screen. Too much scrolling involved. Unless you really need the extra horsepower that the iMac provides while at home, I'd stick with your current MB.

    Plus, most the netbooks I've used have absolutely horrendous trackpads. Way too small, with cruddy buttons. I guess the Unibody has spoiled me as far as trackpads go, but I thought that even when I was still using my G4 12" iBook.
