    I own both, do you need portability?

    If not then its pretty obvious :D

    I have the better of the 2 21.5" imacs and the gaming performance is pretty good, as is the mbp.

    The performance of them in general use is pretty similar to be fair, I dont think either is faster then the other without running benchmarks of course.

    As you have an ipad (so do I :D) I would suggest the imac.

    Both very nice machines though.

    What made you go form the 21.5" rather than 27". God you got all 3 then lucky devil you made of money ?

    Unless you need a real computer that is portable, there's too much overlap between the MBP and the iPad imo.

    What do you need the performance for in the iMac?

    The size, I felt it was too big.

    I almost got the 3Ghz 27" but my sensible side kicked in :D
