Strange question maybe but I am new to Macs and just don't know the answer. I have some friends who are impressed with my Imac and it is about time that they upgrade from their 4 year old laptop. However they spend about 4 months of the year traveling in a motor home and thus need a computer that is portable to a certain extent. However they have had problems with their laptop taking the pounding that it gets traveling. Does anyone know if it might be better to buy a Mac MINI and a lcd monitor to use. I assume that you could put an airport card into a MINI and the base unit is small enough not to take up much room and say a 15" monitor would be easily storable as well. Thinking that a combo like this might be hardier than a laptop and could serve well both in the home and on the road. Appreciate any thoughts or experiences in this.
