I have a 17 inch Macbook Pro, with a 120 GB harddrive, 1 GB of ram and the 256 MB graphics card. Currently I do not have a desktop. I use Photoshop (which runs just as fast as it did on my 1.67 GHz PowerBook- but maybe some other people may not experience this) I also use Dreamweaver, Flash, Final Cut Pro (lightly) as well as productively applications etc. I love my laptop (and am not the least bit worried about it being upgraded in Paris- its already BLAZING fast) but the screen is a little small, especially considering I use it as a desktop. What do you guys think, should I get a 17 inch iMac (stock) so I'd have a desktop, or should I get a 20" apple display and use it plugged into my MBP? Thanks in advance for your responses! PS: Weigh in: do you think the case design for the macbook pros will change with the adoption of the intel core 2 duo processors?
