Hi all I'm a long time Apple fan on the brink of purchasing my first Apple logo:ed computer. To give you a bit of an idea of the type of computer user I am, here's short bio: -Personality: High-end PC user buying a decked out 17 inch laptop every 3 years. -What profession my new laptop will be used for: Freelance art director/brand consultant. -Software used: Lightroom, InDesign & Photoshop. -Games casually played: Counter-Strike, Formula 1 2010 and a few others. The bottom line is that I need a powerful laptop that will last me for about 3 years and it needs to have a brilliant screen for colour accuracy and off course, Macs use the best panels. I've taken a look at the base 15 inch Macbook and I fancy it, but whispers on the web are telling me that its GPU is barely adequate for casual gamer. The 6750M 15 inch on the other hand seem capable enough for my gaming demands and future proof. However the starting price is at a ridiculous £1,850 and when Apple Care and the high resolution screen options are ticked, the cost tips at a shocking £2,200. It's a crazy sum of money to spend on a laptop. Especially when the same bag of coins buy me an entyre level iMac with 6750M + money left over for a Macbook Air - giving me the best of both worlds. I badly want the 15 inch but would hate nothing more than feeling regret 12-18 months after purchase due to being stuck with a sub-par GPU. Likewise I wouldn't want to feel financially burdened for taking out substantial credit in the region of £2,000 to buy the laptop I really want. Does anyone have any thoughts, advice or guidance to share on this matter? I'm in a trance here.
