    Advice on new purchase?
    So I wasn't able to get my Mac straight away and will have to wait until January, this isn't too bad and I've been doing a little searching a little comparing and I've come up with this;

    Now baring in mind, I will be using my student discount when buying these products, so I will be getting 15% off which would make the final products;



    Macbook Pro - 849.99
    Mac Mini (Upgraded) - 782.85

    Now from my personal perspective, it would seem that by buying the Mac Mini but with my upgrades, I'm getting a lot more for my money, where as the Macbook Pro costs more but obviously, it's portable.

    Thoughts/Oppinions guys?

    Specs:
    Imac 21.5 Inch 3.06 GHZ 4GB Ram 500 Gig HD, Ipad 32 GB, Iphone 4S 16 GB.
    Do you want a portable computer such as the Macbook or one to use at home like the mini.

    The mini also doesnt come with a screen or other things you would get with a imac.

    Entry level imac is 999 so if you should be able to get one for 849 and it would come with the same hd as the mini, same ram but faster processor. You also would get a 21.5 inch screen included in the purchase.

    It's mainly going to be used for my studies @ university.
    I was initially looking for something portable, but I prefer desktop machines, I've also already got a screen that could be used, rather new actually, a 22" samsung @ 1080p / 1920x1080.
