Me: Graphic artist; CS4 Design Standard; budget-conscious; currently using an Intel iMac from early 2008 (I think, it's the 9,1 model), 2 Gigs of RAM, 10.5.8. It: Recently refreshed 'base' 15" MBP, 2.2 etc. Needs: A portable computer that is compatible with my current stuff. I tried switching over to Windows and it lasted less than 24 hours, so I will count Mac OS as a 'need'. Wants: To not be left behind in 5 years with what I buy today. And to play Diablo 3 if it comes out in the next 5 years. You: Advice? I know 5 years might be pushing it, but I want a machine that will last until I can upgrade at my leisure. I'm not precious about needing top-of-the-line, given how that's an endlessly moving target, but I figure for the money the new base 15" MBP should be good for a while (will do RAM/HD myself as needed). I know Ivy Bridge is coming out next year but I can't wait that long for a new computer -- but how much will Ivy Bridge suddenly make my computering better than what SB 2.2 can do right now? I've done tons of research and discovered much to my dismay I am terminally stupid; so in keeping with that I'd like to now ask strangers to tell me what to do. Thanks.
