    Help me choose!
    I have been a PC user all of my life, and have decided to convert to Macintosh.

    I have a Dell Latitude that I use for work, and a desktop PC that I use at home.

    I just recently had my first child, and feel that having a Macintosh for his pictures, home videos, music, sufing the Internet etc. would be best for me, since my desktop at home is quite dated. I'm in need for a new machine now.

    Not sure if I want/need an imac, new macbook, or even that last gen macbook pro.

    Besides considering a remote possibility that I might want to use the new machine downstairs in the family room or even at my local Starbucks, I can't decide.

    Help me choose, I want to order something tomorrow.


    Thanks in advance!

    Specs:
    MBP 2.3 Ghz 4GB RAM 860 GB SSD, iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive 1TB
    I'd say a 15" MBP or 17" will serve you well. It can be used as a desktop replacement, and still be somewhat mobile..the 17" that is. ^-^"

    If you want to be able to use it around the house in different rooms and possibly take it to starbucks, then for sure get a Notebook.

    For the very basic things you are going to use it for, even a Macbook would suffice. The new 15" MBP would also be nice but at a higher cost. With an iMac you are tied to a desk in one room.
