I was surfing the current Macbook refurbished prices and noticed you can get one for around $999 or so. I've been currently feverishly debating MBP 15" 2.8ghz vs. the new MBP 17" 2.63ghz over the previous week. I know I will be hooking the laptop up to an external display for all the serious work but it would also be nice to have some portability. The thing leading me towards the 17" is having 1900x1200 native screen. Video editing will be the most intensive thing done with whatever Mac I end up with. Then I was thinking how about 24" iMac 3gz and the 8800 video card + a refurbished Macbook for some portability. Sure I would only be able to do real video editing on the IMac but that might be okay and I'd still have nice Mac portability. This is my first post and this would be my first Mac purchase as I've had it with XP so I'm making the switch. Thoughts?
