    Okay, you already have an iPad 1, and you have a choice of:

    21.5 iMac (either config)
    27 iMac (low end)
    13'' Macbook Pro (either config)
    15'' Macbook Pro (low end)

    You use your computer for the internet, word processing, occasional gaming, and very rarely for video editing and Garageband.

    Any advice would be great...really cant make up my mind though I'm strangely drawn to the MBPs for no discernable reason..
    :confused:

    Do you need portability and advanced computing that the iPad doesn't allow for? If so a MBP is in your future. If not, get the low end 27" iMac.

    I second that reasoning.

    Except for the fact that a 27" iMac is simply too big for some people. If you feel overwhelmed by its screen, just get a low end iMac 21". If you consider the MacBook Pro as an alternative, even the low end 21" will be overkill by processing power.
