First of all, I'm not buying right now, but I'd like to get some opinions on what course of action to take. The Situation I have a 1GHz iBook G4 w/512MB RAM & APExt (No SD) I have a 32" LCD TV that has a max resolution of 1360*768 In the autumn I'll be going to Uni, and I'm going to buy a new Mac. So I've said to my parents that they can have my iBook (they REALLY like it). Now I was going to get a new fangled Intel iBook a month or so before I go to Uni, but I've been looking at the lastest Intel iMacs and have been wowed by the specs, and the iMac itself. The Problem I LOVE using desktop computers, in particular my mate's iMac G4 . The thing is, I really could do with the storage the iMac provides, that and the power that it has for doing everyday stuff and more. I don't want to spend £1400+ on a MBP or a PM, but I want something with a bit of oomf. If I get an iMac, then I've got two problems: 1) No Lappy to take to lectures / to work with before I get back to iMac. 2) I will now have a 17" monitor as well as a 32" HDTV, seems like a bit of a waste. If I get an iBook then I've got two problems: 1) HDTV resolution is low, not useful for image stuff, close up use. 2) Smaller HD capacity, and less power for ~ same price. The Options 1) Top spec iBook / Mid Spec MBP 2) 17" iMac & low/mid spec iBook 3) 20" iMac & Pen & Paper btw. keeping my current iBook is NOT an option (just don't ask) Thanks, I want loads of opinions people, the more polarised the better!!
