Ok, so im going to study maths at university in the uk next year. Up until now I was going to buy the Macbook Pro 2.2GHz with a 128gb SSD and AG screen. However, I just had an idea that for a little bit less money, I could instead buy the base iMac and a macbook air. I would use the iMac whilst doing work in my room. The macbook air would be used while around campus and back home for holidays, although in summer when I move back home I would have the iMac at home. So, I will add a poll, and the combinations are: #1: Macbook Pro, 15", 2.2GHz i7, Hi-res AG, 4GB, 128GB SSD #2: iMac 21.5", 2.5GHz i5, 500GB HDD And Macbook Air, 13", 1.86GHz C2D, 2GB, 128GB SSD EDIT: A little list of what I use the computer for: - Web browsing - Word documents - Basic programming (will start to learn over summer) - Very light gaming (Counter strike source and browser games) (I intend to do as little as possible at uni) - Use MATLAB. This will be done at home, or if its not done at home, I will have university computers available. I think thats it, if I think of anything else I will add.
