If you are going to keep your mini or the monitor then go for the Macbook.

i'd hold on a little bit to see what the new macbook is like. It might be more appealing than the imac Razz

I bought the iMac, but I wish I had gone for the macbook now. Crying or Very sad

As mentioned above I'd also hang on a few weeks and see if the Macbook gets an upgrade.

Next MacBook upgrade is believed to be a move to SR and it will require new MB's in the MB's and it'll most likely be the GM965 Express chipset like in the MBP's which only supports GMA X3100, which has greatly improved graphics compared to the GMA 950.

Do you want/need the portability of a laptop or no? The answer to that simple question will decide it all. Wink
