I will be a brand new Mac here shortly. So, you guys help me trick it out (for IM) and what is your opinion on the way to go, IMAC 27 or Macbook Pro? Thanks!

    This will depend largely on whether you need a machine you can travel with. If you need a machine you can take around with you, then of course your decision has already been made.

    However as you're asking the question I'm interpreting this to mean you don't feel this is a necessary requirement. If you're sure this is the case, then I would say the Imac 27in would be the way to go.

    This would give you a faster machine with a larger and faster disk drive, plus a huge beautiful and very high resolution display/work area (also a huge benefit if your'e doing any sort of graphics work such as working with Photoshop or similar such as the more affordable Pixelmator).

    Also if your'e coming from a PC background and you're planning to install and simultaneously run Windows (perhaps Windows 7 with VMWare Fusion for example), the larger screen area would also be advantageous.

    You might want to see those glossy iMac screens for yourself before you part with your cash -- they're very glossy.

    If you're going for a desktop computer, the Mac Mini has just been updated with more memory, faster processors and bigger HDDs. And you can plug any screen into it that you want.
