Hey guys, proud owner of an original 2.0ghz macbook here. I'm loving the portabiity of the thing, and plugging it into my cinema display for desktop use is nice. However, in dual screen mode (display spanning), I'm noticing some stutter when having a number of apps open (or heaps of safari tabs), and especially things like dashboard can get quite slow - from the lack of dedicated graphics and 1gb ram i assume. Also, it can get a bit annoying having to unplug the macbook every time I want to lug it with it me, especially since almost every port is used... leaving an un-elegant bundle of wires on the desk. So with the news of an imac redesign, and the fact that I've always loved imacs and they are what drew me to Apple, I'm thinking of getting one and just using the macbook at Uni and around the house. Some problems - I'm not a power user, it's hard for me to justify owning 2 computers. - Syncing: I really want to have my files synced, certainly my iCal, mail etc but also any documents I'm working on, some music (maybe the whole itunes library). Who has experience with this, is it annoying having to constantly sync files over? What's the best way, wifi file sharing? The second reason is my biggest barrier to jumping on the multiple mac train. I can be a bit pedantic, and unless the whole syncing process is easy and streamlined I can't see myself being happy running 2 computers. Another option I'm thinking is the macbook pro, but I dunno, I like the iMac dammit! edit- Oh, I forgot to add that my macbook is turned on all the time, and a lot of the time not even in sleep mode (torrents etc), I'm worrying if this is putting too much strain on my poor macbook and this is another reason why I'm thinking of going the iMac/macbook route. Stick with macbook? (it is certainly adequate for my needs) Get the iMac and go the desktop/portable combo? Or macbook pro? Comments, Suggestions etc etc..
