Mac mini or macbook pro?
I currently have a Mac mini, and I do love it. What I don't love is all the accessories lying around (keyboard, mouse, monitor) and all the cables across my desk. So I was considering selling it all in an effort to just replace it with a 13 in MacBook Pro. (Because I don't really like the feel of a regular MacBook, and the MacBook Air is too thin for me).
Portability is not a big plus for me because I intend to keep it as a home computer anyway. But the whole "everything being built in" concept of laptops do appeal to me more. My concern is since the MacBook is more portable and exposed to more "motion," so to speak, it would decrease its life expectancy. The mini just seems more concrete to me, stable. I don't know...
Do any of you have any pros and cons of the mac mini vs the MacBook?

Which size MacBook would you consider, a 15 or 13-inch? I think one could last quite a long time, especially if you get the SSD drive. And if the screen did go out, you could connect it to a monitor. I think I would look at one of the lovely iMacs if I didn't need to move it, though.
I don't know how to vote because I have both. Both are completely different computers and function completely different. The only advice I can give you is to follow your heart. If you need a computer, sell the Mini and buy a Macbook Pro.
White iPad 4 64GB / Black iPad Mini 16GB / White iPhone 5 64GB / Macbook Pro (Mid 2012 Model) / Mac Mini / 64GB White iPod 3rd Gen / and of course an Apple TV
Another recommendation for iMac. How could you not want that lovely, huge screen? The bottom-rung iMac is quite powerful, and comes with wireless keyboard and mouse.
milliHelen: amount of beauty required to launch one ship.
X2 on the iMac (either size screen is a winner) can't go wrong, get the insides and that huge screen and it looks great on a desktop.
