Hi there, i just wanted some thoughts on the pre-santa rosa c2d MBP. its the base model with the C2D 2.16 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM. This laptop would mostly be used for Uni work, light photoshop and coding. Would be running windows and linux using parallels. I've got a MacPro at home for heavy duty video editing and other tasks. Initially i was inclined to purchase a black MacBook (edu price A$ 2050) and add more third party RAM as i don't want to carry a particularly heavy laptop everyday. That would bring total costs to about A$2300 (including a decent bag and more RAM). However, just this morning before placing the order i came across this deal. These are the specifications of the MacBook Pro for sale: * 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4MB shared level 2 cache * 1GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC-5300) * 120GB 5400-rpm hard drive * 15.4 inch (diagonal) TFT widscreen display, 1440 by 900 pixels * ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 128MB of GDDR3 SDRAM * Built-in iSight video camera * Slot-loading 6x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD+-RW/CD-RW) * ExpressCard/34 slot, FireWire 400 port * DVI port; DVI to VGA adapter included * Optical digital audio input/line in, optical digital audio output/headphone out * Built-in Airport Extreme * Built-in Bluetooth 2.9 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) * Backlit illuminated keyboard and ambient light sensor * Apple Remote * Preinstalled Mac OS X and other bundeled software * Size and Weight: 14.1 by 9.6 by 1.0 inches, 5.6 pounds * Meets ENERGY STAR requirements. all for A$1,300. frankly i was a bit suspicious so emailed the seller to find out that this was a gift and that she would like to sell the system ASAP. Pick up is fine although its a 6 hour round trip. now i was pretty much set on the macbook cuz of its portability and my requirements but am tempted to go for the MBP. what would you guys do? bear in mind the MBP is pre santa rosa so no LED display etc.
