    I find myself moving my Imac 27 around from room to room, especially to watch TV from Comcast xfinity. It is a bit bulky, but sure is easy to move without all the wires my pc had. ANyone else find themselves moving their Imacs around quite a bit?

    I suggest buying a MacBook Pro if you are really moving your iMac around a lot.

    As above, if you feel you are moving your iMac around all the time then youd prob be best with one of the latest MBPs to do your work. Performance wise it won't be far off and you will obviously have no hassle moving it from room to room.

    :eek: That guy must be crazy, that weighs like 30 pounds, and with a glossy screen in the sunlight :p ! He would be better off with a matte display 17" macbook pro :D

    I shift mine to my bedroom occasionally to watch dvd's since the screen is bigger and better than my tv in there :p

    That looks pretty funny. I carry mine from the kitchen counter where I sit and work from during the day to my desk in my office, tomy bedroom where I watch Comcast programs as well as netflix movies. My TV broke and I haven't got around to replkacing it yet in the bedroom. Yes it is a bit larger than a laptop, but the beautiful screen makes it worth the effort.

    I can imagine the looks I would get if I walked into the local Starbucks and plugged it it!
