currently i have had a huge magsafe fire...and apple has given me 2600 cad + tax in credit. for my old notebook and damages. now, here is what i normally use my notebook for. i use it mobile ALOT, i hook it up to a 23" lcd when i get home. i do light stuff on it usually , finances , web browsing , some virtual machines. would i be better off with a mini at home (for my Apple TV) hooked up to my 23" and the mba for my mobile purposes. is the mbp a hot running machine ? , strong ?
