Hey everyone,

I have been debating between the macbook pro and Imac for 3 months now. Here is what i'll be using it for:
  • Flight Simulator/Xplane (occasionaly) via bootcamp for flight simulator
  • I travel a bit
  • School
  • A little video editing
  • Internet/ regular computer things
  • Some web design
  • Learnig Mac

I have a flexible budget, But i don't have the room for Mac Pro.

Thanks

either would be fine. i would ask my self what is more important screen size/internal hd size or portability.

personally i would go with the mbp for the portability because i take my mac with me to work every day

The real question is:

Do you need/want it to be portable?

This is a simple situation. Need it to be portable or not? There is almost no difference between the 2 if you have a large monitor.
