Hey, I hope this is in the right area? I already have the '08 Macbook and I love it, but I'm running low on memory and frankly I just want to upgrade to the Pro. I'm going to college and would use it for writing papers, general use of the internet, and archiving/editing a LOT of pictures. I'd need enough space to be able to bring over my 1000+ images (haven't bothered importing , plus my 25g of iTunes music. iChat, iPhoto, TextEdit, GIMP, and Word would be my most used programs. I don't run a lot of programs, but I do tend to take up a lot of space and even though I've only had it for about a year and a half, I have less than half of my space left. I really don't use my mac for a lot of intense things, but it would be helpful to also install the Adobe suite so that my VC-major boyfriend can use it when he needs to. I've been skimming other topics and so far I've come to the conclusion that the upgraded 13" Pro is a waste of money and I should stick with either a base 13" or a base 15". Space and overall speed is, of course, my main concern, but my computer knowledge is fairly limited so the specs I'm looking at on the Apple website are pretty much lost on me. I can't spend more than the base 15", so I suppose a big question would be if I should just stick with the base 15", or buy the base 13" but upgrade to the 8GB ram and either the 320 or 500GB serial ATA drive (what does that mean exactly? xD)?
