In these days, I think a notebook is a “must”, so first: macbooc pro, and second: if you have enought money,the best kit: imac and macbook pro. I am one of those who choose iMac for performance issue. But currently I work with macbook pro. I think I will soon use both.

good luck for them!

I own an iMac 27’, but now I prefer to get a Macbook pro…

I own the same. Super happy with it! I work from home so mobility isn’t an issue for me. That’s something to consider in your final decision.

Personally I don’t think a notebook is a must, especially if you don’t travel a whole lot. I also find it hard to get significant work done on a small screen.. and if you’re on the move, you might not be sitting at a nice desk with a lot of room. So for that reason I’ve always been a fan of getting my work done at a station with a desktop.

If you’re on the move a lot, and are able to work while you’re on the move, then go for the Macbook. Otherwise I’d just get a new iMac.

I would definitely have to agree with this. I have a Macbook Pro and an iMac. About 90% of my web work gets done on the iMac. It just seems much more comfortable. If I were you I would buy an iMac and then get a regular macbook or a macbook air for travel.

That’s what I’d like to do. I have an iMac now, but it’d be nice to have a Macbook in case I need to design while traveling. Sometimes clients are demanding. :P

Definitely the MBP .

Especially is you intend to do heavy processing.

It’ll run Final Cut Pro nicely, and it handles’ nicely too.

Get the Might Mouse, or super mouse….if you’re a Mouse person, a Wacom if a pen person.
