I had my 17" 2.66 for almost 10 months now since it came out back in feb. i recently had an offer for it ~2500 and i can get a discount for a new 17" 2.8 for 2300~. My main concern is; i like the upgraded specs; 500GB drive, 2.8Ghz processor (may upgrade to the 3Ghz model if possible)...but really is Snow Leopard. I have been beta testing it out on a side machine and its OKAY, but some applications future remain iffy some work flawlessly right now and some are so so..i jsut dont want to be stuck without those applications. I have cs2 & cs3..cs2 seems to work bette than cs3, an di primarily use: CS2, Dreamweaver 2004 and Cs3 (flakey in cs3), iSquint, Handbrake, MTR, Logic Express & FC Express. would this be a logical upgrade or just stick with the early 09? (with Leo & possibly upgrade to snow) i figured that is a decent price for that system and id make near ~200 to upgrade.
