    You really need to decide IF you want to do photo restoration on the go.
    If thats not sa big thing then a iPad and iMac sound like the way to go, and with it being all intergrated t iCloud now, once pics are on your iPad, they will be already for you on your iMac when you get home.

    Personally for me i would like the portabiliy of a MBP and have it hooked up to a external monitor for when im home

    Specs:
    '11 15.4, 2.2, 8gb MBP - '11 15.4, 2.0, 8gb MBP, 2x4gb Gen1 Nano, 8gb Gen3 Nano,
    +1 for an MBP. I use one in a Henge Dock attached to an NEC monitor...makes a great portable/desktop solution. Old image, much has changed Henge dock is still the same...
