I remember when I first came to this site when I decided to switch to MAC. I thought what is wrong with these people? Why can't they make up their minds? Now after a visit to an Apple store I am so confused. I orginally wanted a MBP and to use my three year old Dell XPS desktop as my main PC. Now that I love LEOPARD - I am thinking - Geez, maybe I should go with an iMac? or a mac pro? I wish I had the $$$ for all three! I am working toward my MBA and then my doctorate. So 60% of the time, it is for Office App's and then web-browsing, and creating video's. So lost!!!!! Does anyone use a MBP for a desktop too? Can you close the notebook without it going to sleep? Thanks for understanding. A kid in a candy shop!
