    Hi guys - I am quite keen on buying the 15 in Mac Book Pro, but I am a bit concerned about the GHz - it's only 2.2GHz, compared to the 13 in which starts at 2.7GHz. How much importance would you give GHz?

    To give you an idea of what I would use the laptop for - Photoshop, Light Room, MS Word - meaning, lots of programmes open simultaneously as I do a lot of heavy lifting of photos (I am a food photographer and writer, which is why I would have MS Word open on the laptop, too). Speed is very important to me, so 16GB of memory is a must. But what about GHz? Isn't 2.2GHz too low? I would have to pay a large chunk to upgrade to the 2.8GHz. There is also the option of the 2.5GHz, which is less pricey. Would love advice, please! Thank you.

    The 13" is 2.7ghz dual core, whilst the 15" is 2.2ghz quad core. The 15" is far more powerful.
