I'm getting ready to sell my 2.2 SR MBP because the extended warranty on the problematic Nvidia 8600GT card is about to expire, and since it's already failed once, I fear it will fail again after the warranty expires ($1000 for a new Logic Board). So, I'd like to move to the iMac 2.93, but I'm concerned about its reliability after my bad experience with the MBP. FYI, I'll be moving to a very remote place in Indonesia with no Apple store for miles around...it would require an expensive plane flight. So the usual "just get AppleCare" isn't exactly helpful for me. How does the reliability of the mac pro compare to the iMac? Can anybody point to actual evidence of laptop vs. iMac vs Mac Pro reliability? Is the video card hard soldered to the Logic Board in the iMac? I can handle HD failures or other relatively inexpensive component failures, but I'm especially concerned about the MLB, especially after the nightmare with the 8600GT. I would just be going for the Nvidia 120GT card (as much as I hate Nvidia), but I'd be willing to spend extra for a Mac Pro if it was way more reliable, even though it's overkill for me (the most intense program I use is Lightroom).
