Hey guys, first off, first time poster, long time lurker, love these forums. Long story short, about 5 years ago i owned an iMac, and a macbook when i was into DJ'ing and Producing. Wife wasn't really keen on getting used to them, as she always was on windows, someone same for me, I loved it myself lol. She had problems as she is a college student, also back in school now for her masters. All her classes were based off of the windows format for papers and whatnot. Never really searched deep for the anwser as i'm sure using office for mac now would be the best solution? We ended up selling the machines and went back to PC machines. Now we own one dell inspiron notebook, i hate it, its a clumsy machine, love the fact my black macbook was simple and clean. Also I built a PC myself, i7 processor, 28" monitor, ATI 5800 video card, 6gb ram etc. I don't game anymore unless its on my console and possible a WoW relapse here and there, but nothing graphic intensive for the most part. Kind of finding it pointless to have my machine anymore. I'd rather switch back to mac. As far as my questions are, i'm looking at getting her a macbook pro, baseline 13", light, portable and small so she can take to clinicals for school and write her random papers on, using office for mac of course, which will allow her to correspond with her class formats with everything being word documents? Am i right? For me, I am looking at the 21.5" iiMac, baseline, my two major concerns are speed, going from an i7 down to an i3, but i only do basic browsing on the net, maybe some photo stuff, but nothing heavily intensive. Which i would assume i would see little to no difference, because what i do on my i7 windows machine now, is nothing intensive, so really I am not using my CPU to nearly its full potential. My other concern, is going from my 28" monitor downsizing that much. I've become used to the larger screen but has the same resolution as the 21.5". Its starting to stress my eyes, as i only sit an arms length from the screen. So downgrading would probably benefit me? Lastly, is the stock graphics card the iMac comes with do OK in MINIMAL gaming, such as starcraft 2, maybe handle a WoW relapse and some steam mac games? Thanks so much ahead of time, sorry for all the questions .
