Yeah, excuse me for adding on to the help me threads . Hopefully, there isn't a current thread very similar to this <_<. I am pretty close to buying my Macbook Pro just a few things to question though. It seems Apple became more reasonable with the ram upgrade which enticed me, but would the 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 upgrade (from the 2.2 GHz) be a better choice? Price is not a huge worry for me; I wouldn't mind shelling an extra $45 if the benefit outweighs the ram upgrade; but I do want to be effective with the money. 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 [Add $225.00] 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB [Add $180.00] Eh, a lot of thinking on the possible solutions, but I am being a little too indecisive and I need to get it ordered before Monday. I am a student btw. Heavy Photoshop work and plenty of use with video editing. Typical essay work, browsing, presentations, etc.
