I've been going back and forth between getting an Imac or a mini and am starting to wonder if I should instead be looking at getting a solid MBP and just using that 90% of the time at my desk with external monitor, keyboard etc. Is that a crazy thing to be considering? The MBP would give me greater flexibility in my options, but I wonder if for one, would I be killing the battery by having the unit plagged in 24/7 for most of any given year? Would I constantly be needing to fiddle with it just to turn it on and off (opening and closing the lid etc)? Could a laptop withstand the same kinds of usage (in terms of daily hours) as a proper desktop can? Any thoughts or advice would be terrific!
