    Can't decide which to get.. what's the performance difference between the HD 4670 and 320M? I'm leaning towards the iMac because of the bigger screen, processor, etc. but the portability of the Macbook is nice too.

    Do you need portability? If yes, go for the MacBook Pro. If not, go for the iMac. About your graphics card question, the iMac's graphics card will be significantly faster.

    If the bigger screen is an issue, and you need portability, consider an MBP with an external screen. It's like an iMac, except you can get any screen size you want, Matte or glossy finish, anything.
    The iMac Graphics card is faster, but very few users out there besides gamers and professionals actually use the processor and graphics to their full potential. If you're a gamer or professional anyway, the 13" is probably not for you, and you should consider at least the 15" due to dedicated graphics.
