    Specs:

    Do you even need a 17" MBP?

    i could start off smaller.. but isn't that price a decent deal? It's going to end the end of them month (unless that's a common special that always occurs)... I tend to like larger screens as I do design work..

    It's a decent deal. I don't do serious design work on a MBP screen that's for sure. >_>" The screen is not exactly accurate with colors. It's alright if you are designing a website because it's good to design on what people use to view website with.

    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    If you know that you need a 17" pro machine, that's not a bad price, and the specs are really good. The anti-glare screen is preferable over the glossy (if anti-glare means matte). But only you know if you need that much power. A regular Macbook or a smaller Macbook Pro might suit your needs better. Will you be doing a lot of video production? Will you be needing a lot of processing power and a dedicated graphics card? Or will you just be emailing, using itunes and organizing photos? Are you looking for a desktop replacement that will be your media center.

    If you don't know much about Macs, I'd suggest putting off buying one until you know more about what they can do and which will be most appropriate for you. You'll be able to find a good deal later if you look for one. You can find out about some of the main differences here:
