Hey there,

I've finally narrowed down my decision to the 15" MBP!

I'm trying to decide whether to go with the Base model or the High end,
I will be getting the Hi-res screen option no matter what.

Here's my breakdown..... Base model with Hi-Res and 500GB HDD upgraded to 7200RPM.
W/Edu Discount Total:
$1929.00 CAD

The High end Model w/ Hi- Res comes with a slightly better processor, free 500GB 7200RPM drive upgrade.
W/ Edu Discount Total:
$2139.00 CAD

I will be doing a lot of Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, CSS and basic word processing etc. Possibly Gaming but not a deal breaker.

Let me know what you guys think?

Thanks

A $210 difference, the higher end model is worth every penny. You get a faster CPU and GPU, both of which you cannot upgrade yourself!
