So here's the scoop I am a pc user - have had the same dell POS for 5 years now. It is an ok machine and lasted this long (im pretty good with computer) You can imagine that I only have 80gb for a hard drive on this - and it's slow as anything. SOOOOOO with that being said I am buying the new MBP. I have waited a long time for them to update it and I think it's amazing. Here's the question. Whichhhh do I buy and WHEN? I do not edit movies - or pictures and what not, and I understand thats one of the main reasons to bump up to the 2.53 etc. BUT I do want a really fast computer with plenty of space - and not to be pushed to the limits if I have aim - web browser - messanger applications - and maybe poker programs running. Which configuration do you guys think I should get...the 2.4? 2.53? 250gb? 320gb? And black friday? Rumor i heard was they are giving another 100 off of the student discount - and throwing in an ipod touch. let me know what you all think. oh... and apple care? and if i buy the lower model mbp and upgrade the ram and hd on my own does it void the warranty???
