    Hey all,

    I have a 27" 3.06ghz iMac and now I need a laptop.

    I'm deciding whether I should trade it for:

    2.66ghz MBP 15.4"(I'm not sure if it's late 2008 or 2009)
    4gb ram
    9400m+9600m GT 256mb

    My main uses on a computer are watching movies, photoshop (basic), word processing and browsing. Nothing like final cut.

    Also, does anyone know of a website where all the generations of MBP are compared in a chart?

    Should I go for the MBP? Or should I save up more money and buy the i5?
    I know I don't need the extra power but value-wise?

    Keep the iMac for editing and buy a refurb or used Macbook for browsing and moble processing.
