    Hi all,

    I am still a student, but I'm planning on finishing college in about a half year from now. So in about a half year i want to buy some new products.

    Currently have:
    - MacBook Pro (early 2008). This one is about 2 years old when i want to sell it.
    - External 26'' Samsung monitor.
    - Dell quad core (windows! :( Use it for my movies and series)

    What i want:

    Choice 1:
    - New MacBook Pro (and sometimes connect it to the external screen)

    Choice 2:
    - iMac 27''
    - Netbook (if needed)

    What do i want to do with it:
    Well, since im not going to college anymore in about six month i use the setup most of the time at home. I mainly use my current equipment to watch movies, email, read my rss feed, playing with some VMware.

    Anyone has some advice for me? what is a nice (affordable) setup?
    Thanks

    I would sell the Dell and keep your current MBP and invest on new 27" iMac.

    Sell the Dell, go for a 27 inch iMac and netbook.

    I would get the 27' iMac, they have way more power and screen real estate than the MBP. Plus we might see the tablet next year so that could be something to look into for light portable computing
