Hello, I've been mulling over the idea about purchasing a MBP. The idea has now become a fairly solid plan since my PC Desktop is having major issues all of a sudden, which I'm now tired of. I'm eager to try things out in the world of Mac. I need a desktop more than a laptop, but having the option available of portability will be nice if I need it (therefore, that's why I'm going with a MBP and not an iMac). Is it okay for the MBP if it is used mainly as a desktop (with external display, mouse, keyboard, etc...)? My external display is 23" and the resolution is 1920x1080, will the MBP be able to produce that resolution without any problems? Are there any heat issues having the MBP just sit while turned on with the lid down for long periods of time? What about the battery, is this good for the battery? Is the battery removable in MBP's so that I could just take it out when using it as a desktop? (is that what should be done?). Thanks!
