    I just think you might be dissapointed with an iMac after using the macpro... it is a stunning machine but the mac pro is just so much better and faster etc.

    I have the lowest spec iMac and I don't find it at all slow.

    Another option is to buy the MBP, sell your old one, and buy a 30" apple cinema display for your mac pro?! That way... you get a new MBP AND the big screen that you would get with the iMac?

    Or of course you could do the obvious. I'm surprised I have to point it out!

    You can buy ME the new macbookpro that I've been desperately needing for years and years. Sheesh!

    that's my thought too. The 24" imac whilst not the most powerful machine in the world is absolutely beautiful
    Keith,



    I'm a little confused about the performance quotes we're bandying about here. If your Macbook Pro is like mine (2.16Gz Core Duo, 667 MHz Bus), the newer iMacs (24") can have up to a 3.06GHz Core 2 Duo with a 1066 MHz Bus. Also, they've got the 7200 RPM drives in them as standard.

    Seems a pretty reasonable performance upgrade over our Macbooks to me. Especially with a bit of a discount.

    Okay, off!

    tis all true indeed Tom, but the slight complication is that my desktop is a first gen mac pro with two dual core 2.66 Xeons inside so in a way, an imac would be a downgrade for the desktop but but but it looks so nice

    Ahhh... didn't get the bit about your "current desktop"! Thought we were only talking about a replacement for the Macbook Pro.

    And yes, that would be a bit of a downgrade.

    yep, it's a headscratcher

    I know the sensible thing to do is realise that everything I have is perfectly adequate for the job in hand and not buy anything else but but but
