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!

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.
