In this thread, help me choose between these two form factors:

I really can't decide; what do I do?

Silliness and trolling aren't really welcome.

This is an actual serious question if that isn't clear.

Do I get the desktop-style thing or do I get the laptop with the display?

Oh, wow, that depends on yourt needs, already having an iPhone. Do you need to do a lot of typing outside of home (which is, having your iPhone, the only real use for a laptop for you, isn't it?)? If not, go for the desktop thing. Especially if you plan on buying an iPad at any point in the future.

Yeah. I don't currently have a laptop at all. It seems that I may need one for the law degree. That's the main thing pushing me towards the laptop. It's hard to tell without being there first.

If I have to work in a library or something it's not easy to work on a 20lb iMac there!! The laptop choice disables any games choice at all, though and has some other disadvantages too. It's hard to decide.

Oh, given that I bought a laptop myself for my diploma thesis, I absolutely understand. It's very handy. This might sound crazy, but what about a very cheap Windows laptop for the university stuff and the iMac for at home, is that do-able? If not, I changed my mind: Go for the laptop. It's definitely going to be handy at some point, e.g. when you're not able to lend a certain book from the university library, because only one is left (and that one has to stay in the library), you can go wild with your laptop in the library.

That's possible. Yeah. I might be able to borrow brannnnnn's in certain circumstances, also.

A lot of my concern about buying a non-desktop is the lifespan issue. They tend to last less time in a useful state.

Then buying a crappy laptop + iMac is the way to go, imho.

You mentioned the iPad earlier. I don't plan on an iPad now. Having OS Xed myself it doesn't suit my needs, at least for the time being.

I think that might be correct. Yes.

Another advantage of the laptop is that I'd get an extra display. I'm not sure how desirable that is.
