    What would be better for me in general.

    1) Get unibody Macbook Pro 2.4ghz

    2) Get Dell Studio Xps + iMac 2.66ghz 9400m gt

    * It makes more sense to me to get a Laptop and desktop for the same price as a Macbook Pro.

    * In another thread I was told to go for a Macbook ,but I think that the screen would be too small... and for an extra 300.00 I could get a Macbook Pro.

    If I were going to have 2 computers, I would them on the same platform.

    however the Macbook is not a bad idea. Just get a nice external monitor, like one of the Dell 22 or 24" screens.

    Dell XPS and an iMac.

    I'd say those are pretty good systems. :) However, I'd only go for a smaller Dell if I were to buy an iMac. If you're getting a desktop, there's no point getting a laptop any larger than 13", IMO.

    You could always go with an older, refurb Macbook to go with the iMac.
