In need of some help deciding on an upgrade.


I'm new to this site and would really appreciate some help. I currently have a mid 2009 macbook pro and would like to upgrade to something current. My normal use includes word processing, lphoto, imovie, basic illustrator, occasional gaming (warcraft, civilization and such-not a priority). I would like to also explore more advanced video editing and graphic design. So my issue is which laptop to invest in. I figure 3-5 years is a reasonable life expectancy given Apple's track record. Ideally I would hook this up to an external monitor. I'm figuring on a budget between $2,000 to $2,500. I ruled out the imac because I do need the occasional portability. I've been reading so much I'm getting snowblind MBA, MBP rMBP...so many choices lol.

Any help in making a decision would be a big help.
