    Okay need some help here.
    I have two alternatives here. I have an SR MBP (great machine, love it).
    But I want to have a new keyboard and screen to use when I am home.

    The 20" cinema display and the new keyboard plus iWork 08 cost almost same as the new iMac 20" plus iWork 08. What should I go for?
    If I take the iMac 20" 2,4ghz should I get it whit 1 gig ram and buy more from some other store?

    You could always opt for a Samsung or LG 22" and you'll end up quite a bit cheaper.

    An extra machine is nice, but if you aren't gonna use it it just a extra machine is almost dead weight.

    You said almost as much. Just get whichever one is cheaper.

    Keep in mind when the iMac is obsolete in 5 years, the screen will still be going strong.

    Yeah the screen will maybe be the best to get. Then I will have a glossy screen on my MBP and one matte, and whit the money I save can go for more memory for the MBP.
    What kind of memory should you get for a SR MBP? I have 2gb right now is it worth to aim for 4gb?

    Ooops i fell very stupid right now. :eek:
    I had put 2 cinema displays in the cart, it was not close in price whit the iMac. I did sleep bad this night, I will blame this on that.

    Hehe, but now I know what I should get.
