    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

    The high end one also includes a significantly better GPU.

    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!
