Hey all. I am in need of some assistance. I am kind of in a pickle here. I don't know what the best option for me is. Maybe you can help curb my decision. Here's my situation. I am using my beloved 2.33ghz Macbook pro, 15'', matte display with 2 gb of ram and 120gb hdd. I love this thing to death. I traded an iMac (2.4ghz 2008 model) for this thing due to job reason. I needed to be mobile. Sorry to say, the job fell through. I have been using the MacBook Pro since as my main computer. Now, as I said above. I do love this MacBook Pro quite a bit. Took a lot for me to get it. But, sadly, I feel she's getting a little dated. So I was thinking about upgrading and possibly selling the MBP. (oh no!) - But I am in a pickle because I am unsure of what to do. One of the reasons I am thinking about upgrading is because I have recently been having neck and back issues from staring down at the screen all hunched over like. I need something more eye level, but I don't want to buy a stand because I would rather have screen real estate over a stand, if that makes sense. Here are my options. • Save money and buy a Cinema Display or monitor with a comparable panel inside. - Also purchase an arch stand, much like the Twelve South BookArc, and use the MBP like a mini-esque type of configuration. • Buy a Mac Mini - 2.66 or 2.53 and a comparable / older gen Cinema display. And sell the Macbook pro. •*Buy a 21.5'' iMac with the Ati Card. And sell the MacBook Pro. ------- I have some concerns about the Mini and the iMac with the 9400 graphics chip. That's why I opted for the iMac with the Radeon. The Macbook pro has a Radeon X1600, 256meg, card in it. The Mini and the lower end iMac 21.5, have the Nvidia 9400m. I am concerned if I were to go with the cheaper iMac I would not be upgrading too much from the Macbook pro, so I almost feel it might be a loss, with a very minuscule / slight performance change.. I feel the same with the Mini. I was just wondering, how do these 9400m's compare to my old X1600 chip. Would I actually see some performance gain? Or are these 9400's pretty comparable to the X1600 that I have now? - My main use for the Macbook Pro right now is graphics design and video editing. I do webdeveloping, but that's part of the whole graphics deal. I have noticed that the Macbook pro has been chugging a bit on extremely large files, so I was wondering if I would notice a difference. I also play World of Warcraft in my spare time on the MacBook Pro. I don't know if that makes any difference. I play it in "windowed" mode with the settings around high to mid - depending on setting of course. Do you have any recommendations for what I might want to do, or what might be the best choice? I feel the higher end 21.5 iMac is the best choice of all, but I am not sure, it's an awful lot of money for me right now due to being unemployed, but I plan to make it back up with selling the MacBook Pro and some other studio equipment. Edit: I forgot to mention the 2.4ghz 20'' iMac that I had was running the Radeon HD 2600 PRO, 256, gfx card. I was wondering how much of a performance boost this 9400 has over that as well. Since I am trying to narrow down some options. So what do you say? Thanks!
