In the case of someone who spends a lot of time at home with their computer, but also wants to be able to bring it around the house and to other places (friends, work, school, traveling). Would you recommend this computer? I also plan on buying a Thunderbolt display to dock the laptop onto when I'm in my room and feel like using it as a desktop. I just have a couple of questions. Would this be powerful enough to serve as my "main computer" for the next 4, 5, 6 years? Assuming I would dock it to a Thunderbolt display when not using it for portability, could it replace a desktop or even an iMac? Is the screen big enough for practical use when not docked on a display? Although I'll be spending maybe a good 50 percent of my time using it with the TB display, I'm iffy about the size. I'm downgrading from a 17.5 inch screen notebook (doesn't work anymore however) and I'm scared it'll be difficult to adjust. There's a good chance I'll be watching a lot of YouTube movies, however, real movies, I usually watch on my television. Right now, because of Apple brilliantly chooses price points for their notebooks, I've been trying to decide for nearly 24 hours straight on which set up I should go with: Option 1: Get a 13 inch Macbook pro with 512 GB, dock it to a Thunderbolt display, and hang on to my 500 GB external hard drive or... Option 2: Get a 15 inch Macbook pro with 256 GB, dock it to a Thunderbolt display, and buy a 1TB external hard drive to keep plugged into the notebook whenever it's docked as a desktop. What do you guys think?
