What do y'all find more fitting for a med school student - an iMac or an MacBook Pro? My cousin was thinking about getting an iMac for his dorm, but I told him that a laptop would definitely be more convenient. He was going to do an iMac/iPad combo, leaving him with processing power when needed, but mobility as well when he's on the go. He's basically on a limitless budget, so he's now considering the higher-end 15" MBP, for roughly $2,000 (some extras added on through Apple.com).
if he has a limitless budget tell him to get all three. I have a high end 15" MBP and it is great but can get pretty heavy at times. definitely reaching the upper limits of portability but it is extremely well powered. i would love to have an ipad + MBP combo. MBP for power and ipad for portability / e-book reader. id suggest high end MBP and ipad but that's just me. I do a lot of traveling with my MBP in the city.
