    Default Mac...Mac...But what one?
    Hey Everyone!

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for it but...anywayz.

    I'm planning to purchase my first mac pretty soon, and I'm a little confused about choice. iMac or MacBook?

    I've already got a Desktop PC, (only got one desk.)
    I don't really need a portable computer.
    I would like to watch movies on my mac.
    I like Both...

    So...As you can see it's a pretty hard choice. What do you think?
    Should I Get a iMac or a MacBook

    Ps. MacBook (I Would probs get 13.3" probs 2.4GHz proc Price U.K: 1,125.00)
    iMac (Probs 24-inch 2.93GHz Price: GBP: 1,199,00)

    i would go for one that has everything you need without being over the top on things.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    If it's any advice, I love my 2.4 Aluminum MacBook... Depending on the specs on your current desktop, the iMac may be a little overkill, and the MacBook is really sick; it can go anywhere, has awesome battery life, and is all around nice. Good luck!

    Thanks a lot everyone, I appreciate your help.

    After long thinking, I decided to go with the MacBook, Because: It's Portable so I can go to bed and play with my computer. And I've already got a desktop, so buying a iMac is pretty pointless.

    Thanks again. when I'll get my Mac I'll post unboxing video .

    Be sure to stop your unboxing video before that part.
