Re: macbook pro for main desktop computer?


I just got an iMac and I like it a lot, but as a longtime Mac user with a beautiful Cinema Display and Keyboard, I really wanted something better (and faster). The Mac Mini is woefully underpowered for serious image editing and the Mac Pro way to expensive for me. What I would like is a box with a fast Core 2 Duo processor and taking more than three gigs of RAM (though I am not really sure what the engineering limits are with the chip and the RAM). I spent $2k for my iMac, I would have spent that for the box so I could use my monitor and keyboard.

really needs to make something in between the top iMac and the Mac
Pro! The iMac is almost identical to the MacBook Pro (same laptop
processor, same 3 GB limit), and the Mac Pro is a VERY expensive
workstation - Apple doesn't make a real desktop.
