I love having a MacBook since it's basically both my desktop (when docked) and portable to take with me anywhere.

i know those screens look amazing, but i cant justify the cash !

quad core i7 mac book is over £1900
quad core i7 mini mac £700 !!

i have a screen and ext hd, i like the idea of having a mac book but price just kills it
