The church's early-2008 15" MacBook Pro is starting to need replaced for my day-to-day usage. The battery's almost completely shot, I never upgraded the OS past 10.5 Leopard, and frankly I'm getting a little tired of lugging it around.
Anyway, while I'd love a new laptop, I'm thinking that instead I'll go with the new iPad and a 21.5" iMac. I'll probably buy the iPad now and then get the iMac after they refresh the line later this year sometime. Combined, they cost about the same as what I'd spend buying a new MacBook Pro.
The thought is that the iMac can stay at the church (to be used with ProPresenter on Sundays and in the office during the week), and I can use the iPad everywhere I go during the week. I plan to get one of the remote desktop apps for the iPad so that I can connect to the iMac remotely if I need to dip into an OS X app on the go or grab a file I don't have in Dropbox, etc. I already own Apple's bluetooth keyboard, and I plan to have that in my bag along with the iPad, in case I need to do some extended typing while I'm at home or in a coffeeshop or wherever.
On a recent trip with some other pastors, I saw one using his iPad + keyboard to do some sermon work on an airplane, and I think that finally convinced me to take the plunge.
Are any of you doing something like this? How do you like it?
