Hello all, I am debating to upgrade my mac mini (early 2009 model) and looking to the budget of under 1500. I use my mac mini for some graphic works, (mostly adobe illustr. but also some photoshop) and photo retouching work. (aperture). rarely do videos, if ever, no heavy music apps either. So honestly i dont really need an upgrade in a sense because my set up is pretty good to go for next year or two. But i got an apple giftcard to spend away and the portablility has been a bit of an issue for me. i had to carry my mac mini, kb, mouse, AND monitor to some locations for work and it's been a hassle since i used to use powerbook g4... but this happens about 4-5 times a year at max. so I looked at MBA 11", loved it but kinda questioned the graphic card and no major upgrade from my current mini ( didnt want to spend $1000~ for just portability). and with $200 extra (+tax) i could get MBP 13" with bit more powerful machine. still not liking the graphic card though. then i looked at iMac 21", which is the same price is MBP and the spec upgrade is major. I also was planning to get a new monitor anyways. but it brings me back to one of my major reason why i wanted to upgrade. the portability. So i circled around with this question for a week now, discussed with friends, all equally tied at this moment.. So i wanted to throw this question out there and see what you guys think. thanks!!!!!
