Okay, so it turns out I'm getting a new setup (some of you may know about this already), but I'm not sure what to get. The 2 options I am deciding between are as follows: Option 1.) 20" iMac and G4 iBook/PowerBook = ~$2300 I would use the lappy (800+ GHz, 256+ RAM, $500-$700) for just internet, music, and text documents. Nothing too serious, just some nice portable features. Advantages: Don't have to worry as much about laptop. 20" of screen. Best of both worlds. Option 2.) 15" MBP (wait another week and see what is unveiled) = ~$2000 I'm at UNI, but I don't absolutely need the portablilty, though it could be useful as previously stated. It would just be nice because all my stuff would be on one comp. Advantages: Only 1 comp. to worry about. Aluminum MBP looks beautiful. Takes up less space (which would be good cause my desk is tiny, but I could easily fit an iMac on there). My other comp. uses would be FC Express, mild CS2, plus other common uses. I plan on using the new system for about 4 years (iB/PB could be replaced by MB or something at a later date IF necessary). I already have an external 300GB HD, so HD space won't be much of an issue. Basically, which would be better for the long run: iMac or MBP?
