Hi all, I currently own a 15" MacBook Pro. I use it for graphic design, web design, schoolwork, music production, and video editing. Here are the specs: 15" MacBook Pro @ 1440x900 resolution 2.4 GHz Core i5 4 GB Ram 320 GB Hard drive Here is the problem - I HATE the resolution! I originally bought a refurbished one that was upgraded to this new one for free (thanks apple!) but I absolutely hate not having the extra screen space! I also don't like how hot this thing gets and I don't really love doing design and editing on a laptop. So I've come up with a couple solutions: 1. Sell the MacBook Pro and buy a used iMac (thinking a used 24 inch maybe?) and then buy a used white MacBook 2. Sell the MacBook Pro and buy a refurbished i3 iMac 3. Buy an external monitor and deal with it What seems like the best option to you guys? Any input is appreciated. If you recommend a display, what ones are good for what I do? I don't have much money to spend, as I am a student and not able to work. Thanks!
