cMBP-15in w/ High-Res Anti-Glare-2.3 512 or 2.6 1gb?
I had previously posted this in the macbook pro area, but realized my follow up question may be more appropriate here...
I am upgrading from a white macbook (2009) and and i know anything will be a huge improvement. I have it narrowed down to the 15in cMBP with high-res anti glare, but I am waffling between the 2.3ghz and 2.6ghz processor. I will use mostly for work (Word/Excel), and photo editing in iPhoto and maybe Aperture. Also movie editing on iMovie. I would like to stream ripped movies to my ATV (I have an apple extreme). Also maybe some light gaming (Simcity 5, steam games) I have explored the forums and googled my face off, but specifically if i am not using Final Cut or Photoshop- will i notice any difference with a 2.6ghz processor? More precisely - will I notice improvements with the 1GB vram over the 512?
I can use the education store (staff, not student), so this upgrade is only $120. After reading other forums where in the past an upgrade of these specs was up to $400 dollars- is this a no brainer? Go for the 2.6ghz with 1gig and feel good about it?
Thanks for any advice/insight - much appreciated!
