    So i have a imac + ipad and a iphone.

    i use the ipad mainly on bus trips on the morning and at the evenings on the sofa if the gf is watching a tv show i dont care about.

    then the imac and iphone gets used inbetween those things.

    Thing is, ive already think i have to many devices, cause i feel i dont get to use them as much as i want.

    now i want a macbook pro 13 base model, for school and work, so im kinda worried about having to many devices.

    I could sell the ipad, but i love when coming home to my family and show off pictures and videos from vacation and such. With the laptop i have to start it, have to have in the lap, and ye its just clunky.

    So the question is really out of those 4, which has to go. I play abit wow aswell, and the imac is great for that, its also great for photo editing because of the beautiful 27" screen which gives so much screen realestate.

    I don't see the point in owning all of them no. Why an iMac and a MBP? But it looks like you just like to have loads of apple stuff. I couldn't justify iPad when I already have a MBP and a 3GS, but you've already got one and still want more so I guess the decision is just yours.

    Hahaha. I like your thinking, but these devices all have uses. If you can sell off one of the devices, you can use that money and pay for something else that others can use too :p

    #7 sounds like you've already done your part keeping :apple: stock as one of the largest tech companies out there... I wouldn't get the MBP if I were you as you already have plenty of portable gadgets, maybe try the refurb uni-whitebook that's $759 right now, I thought you could to iWork on the iPad or that's a feature coming with iOS4 and multi-tasking?...

    There a lot of people that wish they had the OP's problem. Many people have the problem of being to afford even on of those Apple devices. The OP's problem is having too many. I'd say to the OP, feel blessed that you can afford all of them, I'm sure you can solve this problem on your own. :p
