    Hey,

    I was wondering what are the effects of the 0.3GHz bump for $90 (it's $88 in Singapore!) Is it worth the small price premium?

    Also, if I am a photoshop user, occasionally iMovie user, any need for a 16GB upgrade too?

    What are your thoughts?

    Personally, I'd not worry about the small bump in GHz but if its short money it can't hurt. As for the 16GB, I'd say its better to be safe then sorry in that department since you cannot upgrade after the fact.

    ah thanks! how much does photoshop rely on RAM?

    also, will the 2.3GHz be limited by an 8GB ram?

    It depends on how large the image and how many layers, but memory can have a huge performance gain on Photoshop.
