I've been lurking on these forums for a while and finally registered. I've been a loyal Mac user for 5 years. I bought a 17" flatpanel iMac G4 in the spring of '04 and that served me loyally until I upgraded in January '08 to a 20" 2.4ghz C2D with 4gb ram and a 300gb hdd. I've been thinking... since I like to be on top of things (though it's nice owning a Mac and being able to have nicely functioning computers that last longer) that I'll probably be getting a new computer within the next year. I could take two paths: 1-- Since I don't travel all that much and don't need a computer for work, I get more bang for my buck on desktops and the iMac is a great value. I could wait for the next updates on the iMac and then buy it. or 2-- I would still love to have a laptop just so I can lay on the couch with it or take it somewhere when I do travel. I was thinking of getting either a lower end Macbook pro or a higher end Macbook and then replacing the iMac later on, effectively having two computers on a staggered cycle. Is it worth having a desktop as your anchor computer with better graphics for more serious stuff and having the laptop for general lazy-rot-your-brain-on-macrumors-from-your-bed stuff? Or would you forego the expense of a MacBook and just save for a new iMac?
