So let's say that you just bought a MacBook Pro along with an Airport Extreme Base Station last month, and you got an iPod last Christmas, and you could buy any ONE thing from the Apple store, what would it be?

Assume that money is essentially no option, but it can only be one thing. Is the obvious answer a 30 inch Apple Cinema Display?

This isn't just to spark conversation, I might in this situation for some reason , and am looking for some input .

I go with a maxed out Mac Pro like Del said. You could resell it for so much money, or keep it and have a bad computer.

Aside from the resale schemes and realizing your MBP is all the computer you'll need for some time, I think the obvious choice is a 30" Cinema display.

I'd have to say 30" Cinema Display... If you need the power of the Mac Pro, you'd already have one (instead of a laptop). And the one thing you can always need more of is screen space.

Besides, you could get a semi-maxed out Pro and a 30" for less (!!!) than a maxed-out Pro.

Sitting, waiting, wishing...
