I've been using laptops all my life but recently I've decided to finally get a desktop (iMac) to handle my gaming (very light) and heavy program use. I'm going to be waiting till the next major update to get an iMac though and in the meantime I'll be getting a laptop/portable to tide me over. I do however still love to surf the internet, watch videos and do other very light tasks from bed, while on the couch, -- and will need it for when I travel as well. Which is pretty often to visit family, but I don't have to do heavy tasks while there. Since I'm going to get an iMac I am only looking in the low 1000 range or below. I'm not going to lie, I'd love to wait till Apple releases i3's for their 13' line, -- but I figure since my laptop will only face very light usage it isn't very important. Much less so than possible SB, SSDs, increased clock rate etc for the iMac update. The MBP 13' is a bit more than the MB, is the increased price worth it or would the MB more than cover my needs? I would consider a MBA but to me it just seems like you get a lot less -- processor, screen size, ram, hard drive -- for the same price as a MB or a MBP. And I would consider an iPad but honestly I am not convinced yet. I hear a lot of people talk about how it has replaced their MBs/MBPs but I will need to be easily able to type and a traditional keyboard just seems the way to go. Plus for watching videos and the like, the iPad is obviously less versatile on it's own without flash or java support. Thanks for any opinions. And yes I realize there are many "this or that" threads here but none of them specifically address my own questions.
