Great forum, lots of good information. Here is my dilemma. I have a 13" MBP that it's 1 year warranty will end in 19 days. I have looked at Applecare, and could pick it up for $175. However, what I have found is that with having a new iPhone 4, I don't find myself moving my MBP from the home office much (and my wife and I have stopped arguing over who can use the computer). I am thinking about selling my MBP on Ebay, and getting a 21.5 iMac. I can get the student discount and a free iTouch, that I would sell to offset the cost. The upside is I would have a bigger computer in my home office with a larger HD and the same amount of ram. Either way I would come out ahead. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this? Also is there away to completly backup my whole hard drive to move it to a new iMac before I sell the MBP on ebay? I am most worried about the software that I have on my MBP, and my VM Fusion with my VM of Windows 7. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
