    I have posted about two threads about buying a imac or a macbook pro! However when it comes down to it i can not afford a macbook pro being 19 and in college!

    So i love the screens on the new imacs and i feel as i could get allot more done! I do basically all my graphics and video editing and daily computer use in my room at home!!

    But i now all about leopard and howit might come out with a new redesigned macbook and i would love that specially if the upped the graphics chip to an actual graphics card ..

    So tell me fellow mac users do i get the imac now or wait till mid oct.. and hope the new macbook comes out

    I guess that the Macbook will get a dedicated, or at least decent graphics card around January.

    In case you didn't know, Apple has a great education discount policy, and if that still makes the MBP too expensive, the refurb store is always worth a look :)

    Wow, I think I just had a mad case of deja vu...

    Oh wait, yes, I did.

    What was wrong with your other thread asking the exact same thing?

    Don't think dedicated, likely the next generation of Intel graphics.

    Otherwise you are adding a 3rd big hot chip into the mix, along with all the other junk, into that small space.

    Maybe a slightly smaller package will be the incentive to continue to buy it.

    Though the iMac losing the education targeted end of the market might signal that the MacBook is going to fill that niche with the next update.

    Or both the education iMac and MacBook will hit at the same time, since they would be soo similar in architecture.
