So I'm ready to take the plunge switching from Windows to Mac - I was an Apple user throughout the 80's & 90's (I even interned at Apple when I was a grad student) but I've been off the reservation ever since. Very excited about this change but I'm a bit unsure on what to purchase. I wouldn't call myself a power user - I play games but mostly Blizzard titles which all run under OSX. Besides the standard web stuff, email etc., I do some photo editing and will probably do a bit of video encoding as well. I live in an NYC apartment, so I want to conserve space. Therefore, I'm thinking that either an iMac 24" (4GB ram) or MacBook Pro 15" is the way to go. I think for my purposes either of them would be more than enough - the MacBok offers me portability (even though I'm not sure I need it) and I have a desktop LCD that I could jack into (although it's an older screen and probably doesn't do it justice). I think the iMac is a little more powerful in the graphics department and definitely cuts down on the desktop clutter & wires. Any thoughts on which way to go? Should be fine either way but this newbie could use a little guidance.
