Hello all, Newbie (but Longtime follower of MR) here so don't "flame" me. hah...So currently I have a MBP 2.8ghz Core 2 Duo (Mid 2009) and its perfectly fine in all (minus the battery and CD Drive). However with all the latest and greatest, I feel I need to upgrade and have something better in my home office . I am currently torn between what would be the better buy/fit my needs. Option 1: My first choice was to get an iMac 27" base...and try the DIY install of a SSD drive. I figure my MBP can be my travel/work computer and I've always wanted a home office desktop. So this has always been a want for me...BUT... Option 2: With the new Mac Mini's...a friend of mine suggest I'd get a Mac Mini ($799 Model) and the 27" Thunderbolt display. He said he regrets getting the 27" iMac and said how much easier it would be to swap out "mini's" when it gets old, doing modifications, etc. He made some good points...but also suggest looking into getting a MBA for the portability. Though I for some reason couldn't justify paying $999 for a "docking station display". Option 3: (or just something I JUST considered) the latest option as to seeing people talk about this Kindle Deal and getting 20% off from AMAZON on MBA purchases. This deal just makes you want to just go out a grab one...BUT my plan was to have a "home office set up" and an just thinking about buying a 13" air AND buying a thunderbolt display?! Sounds like its gonna cost A LOT. BTW, I am a designer...so photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver are my main uses...lite, lite, LITE video editing here and there and of course the email and web surfing too . But for the most part, as enticing as this kindle deal is for the MBA, scratch that option! Plus I want to store all my photos and music and more on this so I can get rid of it on my MBP. Opinions? Suggestions? Should I go with my first instinct and get the iMac? Ek, help! So torn!
