Well I am currently completely torn... I'm desperately wanting a new Apple. I currently have a IMac 20" early 2006. Problem with that is I feel the logic board is starting to go out. Locks up once you begin a few tasks also it is getting horizontal lines in the display. Considering fixing this however cost to performance it only makes sense to purchase an updated system. I have had many PC laptops, however, it seems they always end up crashing or obtaining a virus. I seem to have the worst luck with them. So I have been set on the MBP for the longest time. Until now I played with it at the Apple store and well the size and weight have now turned me off as I absolutely love the portability on the MBA's ( looking at the 11). I have still had a i5 quad core PC that my son primarily uses (it's in his room) which he games on. My wife and I essentially are just using the iPad 2 along with our iPhone 4's. Do it's not a dire new to get one now but it is more of a want at this point. Due to the potential refresh coming up for both the MBA and iMac. I want to get each this year but I guess it's a matter of which I could deal with being the older model so to say. I'm extremely impressed with the SSD in the MBA which is an obvious boost to the line up. If I were to go with the iMac I would go with the low end i5. My needs are just general use ie. web, email, photos, also to begin dabbling in photo/video editing. So I know either are perfect choices but I guess it is just one will not be a big refresh... The MBA I'm looking at is the mid grade 11". Thank you in advance to everyone who provides an opinion or suggestion. I know these are redundant posts that you regulars see day in an day out. I have done a large amount of lurking here and hatching as much info as I possibly can! So once again thanks ahead of time.
