I've been a PC person but as of late with two crippled machines I'm seriously thingink of a mac as a replacement. however with so manby options I'm a bit confused. I'm looking at either a 24" iMac 2.66 with 4gig of ram or a macbook pro 13" 2.53 ghz with 4 gig of ram. Basically they look like very similar machines but of course the laptop is a bit more expensive due to portability but I'm wondering of the imac is a more stable / reliable platform than the macbook pro? I need to use either parrallels or bootcamp to run windows xp for cad programs but otherwise I'll be using mac osX for Adobe CS4 and other less intense programs. I'm asking because I currently have two Dells (one desktop and one laptop) and have not been happy with the performance of wither one, the laptop is less than a year old and is slower than the 6 year old desktop!!! Basically I just need a very reliable FAST ( I repeat (FAST)) all in one computer tpo replace these two pieces of S@$T. Any Input on performance of the macbook versus the Imac would be appreciated.
