lap top or desk top
I went into the Apple store to purchase a 15" macbook pro, now that my old desk top has died. This would be my first laptop. A very helpful employee did a good job of confusing me. His suggestion was to buy a 21" desktop (which he said was a better computer) and an ipad to give me the mobility I want (though not absolutely necessary - I don't travel for business, etc.) When applecare, etc is added in, the price for the macbook pro is almost exactly the same as the desktop and ipad combined. I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this.
