I have a June 2007 MacBook Pro that's been doing well for me. However, it has some issues. The battery basically holds no charge, the DVD drive slot is dented & the DVD drive doesn't always work, and probably worst of all, the audio out jack is busted and giving me the red light (I've spent hours trying to fix it to no avail). This, along with the facts that I could always use more RAM (I have 2GB) and they didn't make a 13" when I bought my MBP (I probably would have gotten it instead) have made me decide to get a 13" when they update them. But the more I look at the 27" iMac, for only $200 more than the MBP I was going to get, the more I'm interested in it. The main reason the iMac appeals to me is screen space. The most intense thing I'll be doing on it is audio editing in Pro Tools, but the extra 12 inches will make a huge difference for that. Of course, if I get the iMac, I'll have to buy a new battery for my MBP and I still won't have use of the internal speakers or full use of the DVD drive. So I'd just like your opinions. Option 1: Buy a 13" MBP. Then I'd have two MBPs. The 15" would stay on my desk since the battery and internal speakers don't work. The 13" would go places with me. Option 2: $300 more, buy iMac and battery for current MBP. The money is actually a big factor, but I think I can find it somewhere. The other problem is that my portable won't be fully functional. But my desktop would have colossal screen space and be more powerful than my current MBP or the 13" I was going to buy. Thanks for any input!
