Hello all - I'm new to the forum, but have been using an iBook G4 for many years so I'm fairly familiar with Macs. The time has come for me to buy a new one, as my old iBook struggles with modern basics like Youtube, but I'd also like to have a great new laptop to take to work. However, I have a few questions that the assistants in the Apple Store here in London couldn't answer - I'd even booked an appointment to speak to them - so I've come straight to the experts here instead, I hope you can help A little about me; I work with video editing and also do a lot of motion graphics. At the moment I do all this on my PC which is quite a few years old, and it all works perfectly. However, I'd like to have it all on a laptop so I don't have to cart my PC to work all the time. I've loved using my iBook so much for personal/entertainment that I'd like a new Macbook Pro - so I can use it for personal things, as well as taking it to work to do my editing. It would make my PC redundant, but I'd keep it in the spare room for the occasional desktop editing session. My first question is about the graphics card. My heart is set on the 13" for its portability, because I'd be connecting it to an external monitor at work anyway. The resolution of the laptop display is 1280 x 900 which is absolutely fine for editing standard definition video (some graphics software I run can only export video if your screen can accomodate it - so I couldn't export 1024 x 576 on a 800x600 display for example). I asked the Apple store, if I connect an external monitor to the Macbook Pro - for example a 24" monitor with a higher resolution - will the Macbook be able to export video at a higher resolution, for example 2400 x 1600, which would comfortably allow full-screen HD video output. The assistant in the store and her manager didn't know (but said I could buy one and if it didn't work, get a refund... which I don't really want to have to do). The second question about the graphics card is whether there's much of a difference between the 9400 and 9600 versions, the latter of which is only available on the 15" Macbook Pro. I know some of the software I use on my PC requires a decent graphics card and uses 'openGL' for real time rendering. I don't know any more about it as I'm a bit of a novice - but would that work on the 13" Macbook with the 9400 card? If I go for the 9400 on the 13", I would be getting the 4GB RAM version to boost performance. Again, the people in the store didn't know and just suggested I buy one and get a refund if it doesn't work. Next: installing Windows XP on the Macbook - perhaps a bit of a sin and I resent doing it, but unfortunately some applications supplied by the BBC are Windows applications and no alternatives are available. I asked at the apple store about 'boot camp'. She said they'd never heard of anything called boot camp, but I could by something called VMWare to run Windows within OSX. Now I know Boot Camp exists, but what are people's experiences with it? If I use a dual boot system, will Windows run smoothly on the Macbook Pro? Or does it suffer limited performance? My final question - are they going to bring out a glare-free Macbook Pro 13"? They've released it in the 15 and 17" models which is much preferable, but no sign of it on the 13" yet Oh and also something that puzzles me - is there a huge amount of difference between 2.2ghz and 2.5ghz? Anyway. thank you for reading, apologies for the length of that! Best, Carl.
