Hello folks, I'm going to buy a new apple computer and I'm a bit uncertain about doing it. I think as our daily tasks are almost similar you smart guys can help me to decide about it. Which of the following plans seems better in your opinions (for productivity, speed, any other goods...): 1. Buying a 13 inch MacBook and a 20 inch iMac or 2. Buying a 17 inch MacBook Pro or 3. any other plan you suggest Thank you all, - Dunnil PS. I can't pay more than 3K USD at the moment.

Why not buy a 15" Macbook Pro and a 24" monitor?

buy the 15.4 inch MacBook Pro. The 17 inch is just too big to carry around.

I have to concur on this one-- I just switched to a MacBook Pro 15.4" 2.33Ghz w/2Gb RAM plus an additional 24" flat panel. Lots of space when I'm working at my primary location, and if I have to travel I'm still using my main system. This setup cost me just under $3k -- $2500 for the mac from Amazon, plus $400 for the display from Dell, less a $150 rebate from Amazon. Granted, buying Parallels (plus a Windows License if needed) adds costs, but I really think this is the best environment for programming I've ever used. rob.

W00t, I downgraded from my MBP fully loaded to a MacBook black fully loaded. Not much "noticable" difference if you ask me, except for price. Yes, I know the benchmarks tell your differently, but I needed a poratable notebook, and I have never regretted the slight bit of performance loss. Besides if I was going to drop $2500 on an Apple product it would be a Mac Pro. Wait that is what I did :) I went with the less expensive notebook and the high-end desktop. *poof* On 1/27/07, Robert Hedin <email@example.com> wrote: > > > > Which of the following plans seems better in your opinions (for > > > productivity, speed, any other goods...): > > > > > > > > > > > > > > -- -mike
