I am mainly going to use my MacBook for surfing the web, Photoshop, video editing, and a little gaming on the side. Gaming I know does not rely on the processing power at least not a .3 GHz difference, so for the sake of argument gaming will not be included in this discussion. Now, seeing as how I am only 14 and it does not look like many people around here are willing to hire a 14-year-old, every dollar counts in this case. When I get my MacBook I intend on making an upgrade to 4 gb of RAM regardless of what base I choose. So the bump to 2 gigs of RAM is not crucial in this argument. Onto the SuperDrive, I don't plan on burning many DVDs, though this is a nice feature. I am currently running on a max of 120 gb on this computer with about 50 gbs free space and this is including the clutter that has accumulated over my 4 years of owning this PC, yet again a 40 gb upgrade is not really necessary. There is one thing that concerns me though and that his how big of a difference will .3 GHz make on the performance of the computer whilst I am using Photoshop (CS3 if you are wondering) or using iMovie? Is it worth the $200 upgrade?
