    iMac + MacBook or MacBook Pro 17"?
    Hey.
    Since my MacBook died and I need a new computer for work pronto, I decided I wanted a Desktop but sometimes I do need the mobility.

    The question is what you would suggest,
    Getting an iMac 24" 2.8Ghz + MacBook for $3,098.
    OR
    Getting a MacBook Pro 17" for $2,799.

    The $300 difference doesn't make any difference for me its a small money.

    My uses for the computer is mostly eBay + Adobe Creative Suite 3 and very very soon to be also in use for Pro Tools HD and Logic Pro 8.


    Thank you =]

    Specs:
    MBP 2.3 Ghz 4GB RAM 860 GB SSD, iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive 1TB
    I'd go with MBP since you need a desktop replacement and the 15" MBP is pretty portable. The 17" one is kind of a hassle, I leave that one at home and bring my MBP to class and use my MB when I really need mobility.

    Agreed.
