    Well if portability is not an issue, get the iMac. It'll be faster and have a bigger screen.

    Do you have a copy of Windows already? If not, that would increase your costs when buying the iMac, putting it over $1500 (if you're set on that model).

    The only reason I would consider a Sony Vaio would be blu-ray and for Windows. Otherwise, I can't recommend buying a PC to anyone nowadays. Once you own a quality Apple product, it's hard to ever go back to a Sony/Dell/HP. You can save some cash if you with a refurb:

    There's even a 27" same specs going for $1450
