I have a 27" iMac as well. However from a portability perspective I have found it lacking. It was very cumbersome to hold in my lap on the sofa while I watch my kids and trying to use it while sitting in coach on a plane- forget it!

I did think about the $500 difference and came to a couple of conclusions:

1) over the first year of ownership, my guess is the total spent on the two different systems will be about the same taking into consideration lens, storage, card purchases etc.

2) with everyone buying D800s, I should be able to fetch top dollar for my lenses (based on what the Nikon 24-70 is going for used I can buy a new Canon 24-70)

3) I have an inferiority complex. Choosing the inferior Canon was my only choice. I am not worthy of the Nikon
