Thread: Opinions/Input if I may...
04-08-2013, 04:22 PM #1Opinions/Input if I may...
I am looking at setting up a home office at home and need opinions on which way to go. My goal actually would be to make this office dual use. It would be an office to work from home a couple days a week and it would also be my "play room". So, I would have both a Windows setup for work then I would have a Mac setup for play.
For work, I'd be using my work PC (notebook) so all I really need is a pair of 24"+ screens and I'm good. Tons of displays out there so no issues. On the play side though, I am torn on which way to go.
I want a 24"+ screen which is why I have been eye-balling a 27" iMac. Another thought I've had is to just buy a 27" Thunderbolt display but problem is my 2008 MB doesn't have Thunderbolt. Thought crossed my mind that maybe this would be a good time to upgrade my 2008 MB for a new MB which WOULD come with Thunderbolt but then that means an expense that is not really necessary (there is absolutely nothing wrong with my MB). However, sticking with my 2008 MB leaves me with little choices on displays.
So, here is where I need input. Can you guys provide ideas on what my late 2008 MB is capable of as far as external displays. How big a display can I go?
Or, should I just go for a 27" iMac? Of course, this means my MB would end up laying on the shelf gathering dust. :-(2008 Alum MacBook: 13", 2.4GHz, 4GB, 750GB, Snow Leopard

Who says that your MacBook will just lay on the shelf. It's always possible you could take it outside your home when traveling, work, school, etc. It's always nice to have a portable Macintosh computer!
