I'm trying to debate if I can depart with my 2011 MBP and get a new 2011 Mini plus an iPad 2. Money would be just about the same after selling the 2011 MBP. I currently also have a 24" monitor that I connect my MBP to when at my desk at home and use it with a wireless USB keyboard and mouse, so the peripherals that I currently use would be used with the Mini. I also have the MBP souped up with an SSD drive and 8GB RAM which I would plan to move over into the Mini as well (and then sell the MBP with the stock HDD and RAM that are sitting on my shelf). A.) 2011 MBP 13" i5 2.3 GHz B.) 2011 Mac Mini i5 2.3 GHz + iPad 2 16gb Thanks!
