Hey everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my post and help me out! I currently have a 2007 Macbook Pro and the screen has started to go on me. It has out-lived its warranty so I cant get them to replace the motherboard for free. I have taken apart my notebook and checked all the connections and the issue still persists. So I have decided to get a new 15inch Macbook Pro and wanted to know what your thoughts are on the matter? This is what I will be using it for: -Editing photos from my D700 just about every other day. I will be using Photoshop 5 and Lightroom. -Playing Starcraft 2 in my free time -I will be using it for notes in class (I go to UCI) and I will need it to be a desktop replacement So here are the options I am looking at: Upgrading to the 2.3Ghz Not sure what I should choose in terms of storage? 750 or 500gig? Or 128 SSD? -Forgot to mention I have a 500gig external hard drive that is completely full of photos, so yes I take and edit a lot. Also is it worth waiting for Lion and the free iPod in the summer? Thanks again!
