Hi awesome forum people, I've been waiting for the new macbook pro line for quite some time now and with the Ipads release I've now reached a fork in my path details I have approximately $3000 to spend (canadian) on computers from a government bursary, any unspent money goes back to the government Scenario: I have a core I5 PC with a 260gx video card home computer running windows 7 (going to try and hackintosh it as soon as this semester is over) my old laptop is a 3 year old blackbook. It was the best decision of my life to buy that blackbook as apple opened my eyes to what great design is. I also have an Iphone 3GS and and most likely going to upgrade to Iphone HD when it comes out (sell my 32gb mint 3GS and buy the new iphone on a 3 year term at a large discount probably costing me no extra) I'm a computer science student. I do programming (duh). On my computers I also do web and some graphic design. I also game a bit (waiting for starcraft 2, diablo 3 and final fantasy 14) Options: what to do? here is what I'm considering option 1: 15 inch Macbook Pro. top-end model (no extra upgrades) with 3 year warranty. this will fill my budget and do everything I need it to do and more option 2: 13 inch macbook pro or 15 inch low end and whatever upgrades I can stuff into my budget will go into the laptop AND and the Ipad, whichever one I can afford, probably a 3G model with a data plan later. This decision is a toughie for me. the top end15" will last me for a few years and do everything that I need it to do well. The low end will most likely do everything I need it to do perhaps not as efficiently as the alternative but I will also be able to get the Ipad. Why the Ipad? I don't know, it really looks amazing and the touch screen seems like it will be good for notes and school and book reading. Looking for Pro's and Con's of each option and what would you do in my shoes. thanks for all your help!
