    Not sure if this is the right forum but here is my question.

    I have a 17" MCP high res, 2.6 Ghz, 4 gigs of ram and a 7200 200 gig hard drive. The computer was built for video editing I had it built in December of 07. I am looking at either getting a cinema display or a new Macbook. The reason I am looking at the Macbook is this: I use the 17 all the time and I am worried about the ware and tear due to the fact is my home computer and I also use if for work. The Macbook would be my home computer and something I could easily travel with when I am not doing video.
    Any suggestions?

    Work with one

    Keep your current laptop. It is very reliable. Use some monies for back-up or Time Capsule. This way if something goes wrong you have your data to transfer to another laptop if necessary.

    Two laptops is more of a hassle. Save your money.
