Hey guys I need a little advice. I have an old aluminum MacBookPro 2008,completely maxed out , I think one of the last models before the unibody. (has Snow Leopard) I’m all out of space, literally only 1GB of free HD space, I can’t even update my OS system. So its time to buy another. I’m torn with rumors on the Ivy Bridge processor and the talk about redesigning the shell. (2012) Guys I need a new computer, not so hot for the external HD because most of my files are music and video in iTunes. I’m looking to spend $4K, so obviously I want it to last. I just don’t want to spend that kind of money and then have Apple come out with a new sick body design, possibly in flat-black. I’m not going to be happy if I get the last generation of an old model. (I know you can't keep up with technology, but you can at least be smart about it) What do I do guys; 1.) Get an external HD and deal with the pain. 2.) Go for the current MacBook Pro (15in AG Hi-Res, 512 SSD, 8GB Memory, 2.3GHz Quad-core = $4K) 3.) Modify my current aluminum body Pro and add a HD in place of the CD drive. 4.) Any other options? I just don’t want to be that guy who drops that kinda loot for an old model in 6 months…plus all the complaining about heat and noise…. It’s a hard decision.
