CHOOSE sorry about that. ok so up until a year and a half ago i had a white macbook core 2 duo (dont recall the specs) and for some reason decided to go back to pc. i ended up buying a quad core i7 2.9ghz, 17 inch, 6gb ram hp. since day one it had its issues and as of late all it does is crash and shut down due to over heating. im officially done. what i am currently in the market for is a refurb and whats in my budget so far is the early 2011 2.7ghz 13 inch or the 15 inch 2.0 quad core. my main uses are serato scratch live, vdj and photoshop and the usual internet movies and video.. im a photographer - dj. im always on the move and 90% of the time am lugging my laptop. past year its been a 17 incher =-(.now my question would be which do you think will be best suited for my needs and budget? i have a desktop pc so photo editing will not be a total issue for me since i do most my editing on the desktop even tho at times i dont mind photo editing on the go, in order to make some progress on my work.
