Hello all- While I am new to posting on the forums, I've been a fan for years going here to check out tips and advice. I thank you all for that in advance. Here's my dilemma: (I know this has probably been discussed previously but I didn't see any specifically related threads in the recent past so I decided to post). Should I get a 2.4 MacBook with fully upgraded RAM and HDD (via Apple or DIY), or get a MacBook Pro of comparable stats? Here are the facts: 1) I plan to purchase a monitor either way to have it function as a desktop when I am at home, therefore the screen size is not really a factor 2) I plan to use the machine for a lot of creatively charged programs including Apple Logic, Reason 4.0, and other music creation programs. Additionally I hope to run Final Cut Pro Can the MacBook handle a decent FCP workload? I've read that it CAN. Also, will the dedicated graphics card in the MBP really make a substantial difference in terms of video editing, etc.? As you can tell, I'm leaning towards the MacBook to save an extra $1000 for what seems like a slightly bigger screen and a firewire port. What are peoples thoughts on the matter?
