    Hi posted this moring but i wanted to refine the question. I am looking to buy :confused:a MBA 2.1 or MBP 13 with a MacMini which is a better combo:

    1) MBA 2.1 with MacMini or :confused:

    2) MBP 2.2 13" with MacMini :confused:

    I already have a HP Tablet 12", HP Mini NetBook 10", 2 Smell's (Dells) 1 for security cameras the other for downloads. I want to get a Mac since i just got the iPhone 3Gs 32. I recently sold my MacBlack ( which i only played with for a month or so) Macs are still a new field to me, but now i am torn between these two options. I Like portability because I am always on the go, not so much into gaming or graphics, Photoshop CS4 at the extreme. I repair PC's for a living .."ditto" but where i live in the Bahamas a lot more people are buying Macs so i need to get with the click.

    Thanks in advance.:confused:

    I really don't believe you'll need both. Get the MBP and hook it up to a 24" external display and external keyboard and mouse. You'll have a really fast portable machine, plus a desktop experience that's even faster than the Mac mini. If you had the black MacBook and didn't mind the size or weight at all, you'll be happy with the even lighter, more feature packed MBP.

    thanks for all the replys so far

    @ipave not really sure but i think its because i hardly use my laptops @ home and i do tend to leave them(desktops) on 24/7

    @aaquib i already have 4 24" Dell monitors and a 32" toshiba lcd its over kill :confused:

    :) If you want my address, please, I will be more than happy to get one 24" DELL, and help you.

    On the other side, I got the 13" 2.53, after I sold my MB AIR, and I am very happy.
