    I'm so confused :wtc: I bought my laptop for my video editing needs and the iMacs came about about two weeks later. I'm debating selling my laptop to get a 24" iMac, editing on that thing would be like a dream.

    Go for it. If it's going to make doing your job / tasks easier then why not?

    well what good is buying an iMac going to do? If you're going to break even, why even spend the money and then worry with selling the macbook? :dunno:

    Uhhh no. What makes you say that? A desktop in general will alwyas be better than a laptop for power.

    But imac is a more powerful computer than MBP hands down.

    I do believe so...the components are largely the same between the two computers. If the iMac had a full size video card then there would be a debate.

    I remember I sold something once, and the guy offered $250 over what I was asking (I was asking $350 + shipping) if i could send it to his daughter that was in school in London as a birthday gift, he was in south africa or something :hsugh:

    bidpay does sound familiar. is that an escrow service? cause that's what he wanted me to use...
