While at work I use in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop on a daily basis. I use my personal Unibody MBP all day at work to get the job done. As you can see in the pic below, I have it hooked up to an external monitor and bluetooth keyboard/mouse. So my on-board screen, keyboard and mouse all remain untouched. The company just bought me an HP 24" monitor which is in the mail as we speak. My issue is that this is my personal computer and I want it to last me a long time. I'm concerned about how much I'm killing the life of my laptop by leaving it on for 8 hours a day while running these programs. I'm considering convincing my boss to get me a Mac Mini to replace it for work. However, I have a feeling he will just laugh at me because they already offered me a new Dell Desktop to use. But I refuse to switch to Windows for creative purposes. Click to enlarge What are your thoughts?
