...should I have gone with a Dell laptop instead? [/joking] No seriously, should I have gone for the last gen 15" model? I have the 13" 2.26GHz MBP which has been a joy to use so far but now I have the chance to get a refurbished previous gen 15" 2.53GHz MBP for £200 more than what I paid for the 13" model. I mainly use the MBP for surfing, iTunes, running VMWare, Aperture and Photoshop. The latter two is as a hobby, nothing professional yet. I'm very tempted to go for the 15" model but only thing stopping me is the RAM limitation and battery life. I mainly use my MBP away from the desk so 6-7 hours battery life is great. I guess I can get over it by getting a spare battery if I really need one but the RAM is still a sticking point. I know 8GB is more than what I need right now but I'm looking at 2/3 years down the line. Will there be apps that require more than 4GB to run? How long before the price of 2x4GB is equal to 2x2GB today? I need to decide quick so I can get on with enjoying my MBP. So in short... 13" MBP 2.26GHz 4GB RAM 500GB HD 9400M 7hr Batt Life vs 15" MBP 2.53GHz 4GB RAM 320GB HD 9600GT 5hr Batt Life Thanks for reading if you made it this far!
