    Hi everyone
    I'm new here
    (and i'm not really good in english!)

    I want to buy a 15" macbook pro, I will ask a relative to bring it from canada
    I'm gonna use it for photoshop and daily tasks
    no gaming
    and I'll will keep it for some years!
    and since I don't have an access to apple stores in my country
    I won't be able to return it or something
    so it's pretty important to me to make a good decision
    I would love to save some money! I mean cheaper/better. but if I have to spend more I will.
    and I can't customize it, it's easier for me to tell the person to bring one of
    those 15" inches on the apple web site

    so please tell me guys
    Should I buy

    15" 2.0 GHz /500 GB/4 GB memory or 15" 2.2 GHz/750 GB/4GB memory ?

    and is the battery life in 2.2 less than the first one?

    Thank you for an early replay

    In my opinion the Base 15" will be perfectly fine for you. You could spend the extra money and upgrade the ram to 8gb if you wanted to

    Base model is fine. You can upgrade the HD and RAM from aftermarket if you wish.

    I think youve got your answer..

    But I will add. Your English is fine. In fact, it is quite a lot better than some here, who's first language is English.

    Thank you all for your answers
    I really appreciate that

    That's right, I can upgrade it later (I hope till then I'll live in a country with an apple store :p )

    and Vsighi I prefer a 2011 model.
    by the way I love that old colorful apple sign!
    how did you do that?

    and Electronique
    thank you so much!
    It's so kind of you to say that
    it gave me hope!
