I need a laptop and a desktop. What is the best combo?
I am ready to replace my PC's with Macs. I need a laptop for myself. I run a small business and work 60% from my home office, 30% from my business location and 10% on the road. I use Quickbooks and need to connect remotely to the PC's at the business location.
I'd like a desktop for my family. The "family" computer would be used for school work, internet, itunes, photos, games, etc.
I hope to eventually upgrade the business PC's to Macs.

For the family, I recommend an iMac (size is your preference).
For you, if you don't need to do heavy work with video or photo editing, then a basic Macbook or Macbook Pro entry level will do just fine.
Combine that with an Airport Extreme Base Station (it interfaces with the Mac much easier than a typical wireless router), provides the best performance with Dual-Band technology, and offers a USB port for connecting an external hard drive.
If you have a wireless printer, you are all set, otherwise, invest in one!
Look for a model that allows wireless printing AND wireless scanning.
That's how my setup works and I couldn't be happier!
I hope my recommendation helps!
