MBP 15" Antiglare
Processor: 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
Memory: 8GB memory
Hard Drive: 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
Intel HD Graphics 3000
AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB GDDR5
Built-in battery (7 hours)
With an external 27" monitor not sure which one yet

$2,449 (not including monitor)


iMac 27" Antiglare

2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
8GB memory
1TB Serial ATA Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive
AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB


I will be attending graduate school for design and will use the computer for a variety of projects ranging from print, web, video and photography. Also my idea is with getting the MBP and a monitor is so I replace having two computers. My only concern is the battery life and longevity of the MBP.

Opinions greatly appreciated or experience with using both systems. Thanks!
QUOTE Thanks
