    Hey guys. I'm looking into upgrading my MacBook Pro and thinking about getting one of the two high end 15 inchers. I just can't figure out if it's worth going for the larger hard drive, speed, and video card. I go to school for Film, so video editing is a biggie. Is it worth paying the extra 300 bucks for the faster model?

    Thanks
    Alan

    If you have the money, yes. 2.8GHz has 6MB of L2 cache and 256MB more VRAM.

    You would absolutely benefit from the 2.8 model, if you can afford it. But if you can't the 2.66 should be fine for what you're doing.
