Hey guys, I'm interested in buying a Mac notebook and will be doing so within the next few months. Initially I was interested primarily in the Macbook because of the smaller footprint and therefore portability, but I'm now looking at the MBP instead. I like the bigger screen and the LED backlighting. My main concern, however, is with the wireless range. I've been thinking carefully about my needs and I will primarily be using it places where I have my own wireless network (my parents' house and at my apartment). So, I won't be relying on it to pick up unsecured networks nearby, however I need to be certain that it will be able to pick up and maintain a fast connection with our own wireless networks. At my parents' house my bedroom is 2 floors above the router. The router is in the basement and my room is on the second floor. After reading various things about the MBP and wifi, I'm worried that the MBP might have trouble picking up the signal and maintaining a signal/fast connection. Does anyone have any input on this? Does anyone else have their router that far away? f so, do you have any difficulty with the wifi? My current laptop (I'd be switching from a 13.3" Sony Vaio) picks up the signal fine, but when I look at the details the signal strength ranges from Low to Good (2 - 3 bars), but 54mbps. I'm hoping that I'd get the same performance from the MBP. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance EDIT: I forgot to ask in my original post... I'm also debating between the two 15" MBPs. For general/basic usage (internet, chatting, movies, music, managing photos, etc.) is the base MBP sufficient? Would the better video card and 2.5/2.6ghz vs 2.4 make a difference for someone using it the way I would be? TIA.
