    Get a 15" macbxxk pro (the small monitor is too small). The iPxd is stupid. I have one (company issued) and don't even use it. Why would I hassle with typing shxt with my thumb on an iPxd when I can use my laptop? I just don't get it.

    The mxcbook air is ok, but doesn't come with a CD drive, and the 15" monitor is more expensive than the mxcbook pro 15" and less computer. It's super light weight though.

    I switched to mxc from linux and windows about 4 years ago and will never use windows again (except for vps/blackhat).

    ( i guess mxc is a bad word here for newbs).

    mac ? I would suggest you a windows computer. For the same price of a mac you can get a powerhouse in a box on windows 7.
