As far back as I can remember, I have always been pining for a Mac, especially their Pro line. It was the Titanium PowerBook that began my love affair with Macs but I just never had the funds or could justify spending that kind of money on a computer. This past Christmas, I took the plunge and bought myself a MBP. OSX is really worth its weight in gold. I guess it's the same reason people buy Audis or BMWs once they mature. I'd like to think buying Macs is somewhat germane to buying automobiles. That said, my ideal computer should last me some years down the road. My last PC that I built myself has served me well for the last 3 years. With all that said, it's time to get a desktop replacement and the MP is it. What I want is to pair it with a 30" ACD. I'm currently running my MBP off the Dell 2407 and it's wonderful. I've heard so much good things about the ACD line I've decided to go Apple through and through. My thoughts are to get the display first which the MBP can immediately enjoy, then 6 months down the road, I can get the Mac Pro which hopefully will have better specs. It should be said that neither items are essential. These are more "I want" rather then "I need" purchases. Still I'm perplexed by which to get. What would you do in my shoes?
