Elliot Jay Stocks has two posts about his decision to forego a setup with just a MacBook Pro and a cinema display and instead roll with an 11-inch MacBook Air and a 27-inch iMac. The funny thing is, this is exactly what I have been thinking for my future setup.
I already rock an 11-inch MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, which spends most of it time docked with a Henge Dock to my 24-inch monitor. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is essentially just a desktop that can be used as a portable in a pinch. That is the main benefit of this setup, also having a spare backup.
But come next fall, I may opt to switch to the same setup, which Elliot does any amazing job of outlining.
