iMac vs Eizo CG222WK

Hey boys. Hey girls.
I've been trying to search the forum for answers but I can't find any so I'll try an own post.

I really can't figure out what to do here. I recently started a little retouching side business and I'm about to by some gear. And as I see it, I've got two options:

1. Since I have a Mac Book Pro (I know it's not the most powerful computer) I could buy a 22" Eizo ColorEdge CG222WK. From what I heard a great monitor that's in my price range.

2. Since I have a Mac Book Pro (I know it's not the most powerful computer) I could by a iMac. Then I'll get a new computer but can I retouch with that screen?

Could you please enlighten me?

Thanks a bunch!
/Karl
