Hi, new to the forums, new to mac in general. I'd really appreciate some input, as I've been thinking this through now for a few weeks, eating up all the information I can (even taking into account the screen problems of the imac) and... yeah, I'm at a loss. So, I thought I would ask here.. I'm in the market for a new computer, the laptop I'm on now, while it still works and does ... most things I would like it to, it's starting to show it's age. It's about 3 1/2 years old, an HP, decent specs for when I bought it. Anyway, my budget is about $1300 total before taxes, and before any sort of protection plan (I'll be buying from either futureshop or bestbuy since I'm in toronto, but way out and nowhere near an apple store, unfortunately). I don't do a whole lot of work on my computer, it's mostly for multimedia, watching movies, listening to music, web browsing, the occasional work, but mostly it's an entertainment machine minus the gaming. Budget constraints being what they are, I've narrowed it down to either the 13" macbook upgraded to 4gb of ram, or the 21.5" imac. While the mobility of the 13" macbook is nice, as that's originally what I was looking for in a new computer, along with something that was powerful enough to do everything I wanted to do and then some, the screen size for my budget seemed a little small. And while the 21.5" imac will, probably, have all the power I'd need for a long time to come, the lack of mobility is a bother, but the screen size, faster ram, faster processor seem like it would go further as an entertainment/multimedia machine than the macbook. But at the same time I have to take into account potential future uses, and I wouldn't want to be left behind because I decided for mobility over power when I needed power, or if I decided on power over mobility, when I needed mobility. So, if it's just going to be used as an entertainment machine, more or less, which would you prefer? All pros and cons are welcome, even personal biases, anything that would help me make a decision.
