    Macbook Pro 13'' - Mid 2012 Baseline
    Hi guys, im a bit unsure about what i shoud choose, what do you guys think is a better option?
    Option a) 13'' Haswell RMBP with a dell 23 monitor.
    Option b) Haswell 21.5 imac with a 256gb ssd and hopefully a 1gb dgpu.
    Now my uses consist of internet browsing, homework, light gaming, youtube, etc and i want to be able to play GTA V, medium settings roughly 30+fps sometimes.
    Pro's and cons'.
    Pro's for option a)
    Bigger screen, portability.
    Con's for option a)
    Cost more, more hassel to get all the parts (mouse, keyboard), less powerfull gpu and smaller ssd, cables.

    Pros for option b)
    Bigger ssd, better gpu, all in one design.
    Cons for option a)
    Smaller screen (bit too small for todays standard).

    The problem is youre comparing models that dont exist yet =P
    We are still unsure if even the 15" will continue to have a dGPU or whether they will decide to use the Intel Iris in there.

    But i would definitely say go with the iMac. Portability doesnt seem to be too big of a deciding factor for you, and 1.5" of diagonal space shouldnt really be the factor to talk you out of a more powerful computer.
