I recently had my late 2008 MBP 15" (2.8 GHZ) stolen out of my car. Despite being LoJacked etc it has not been found or recovered (we almost caught the thieves but they escaped!). Fortunately, it's an insurance claim, and I will be able to purchase a new 15" MBP when the claim processes. While waiting for it to process, I purchased the basic 13" MBP (2.4 GHZ C2D) for work purposes. Unfortunately, Apple sent me a defective unit - the DVD drive does not work, and I'm eligible for a full refund. I'm considering replacing the 13" with the current 15" MPB right away. I love the size and portability of the 13" far better than my old 15" (which was too heavy). I travel frequently, so portability is a plus. Also the big perk of my old 15" was the Expresscard slot that worked well with my Sony Ex-1 video camera. That feature is now removed. However, I use Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, and other applications frequently (as well as enjoying the occasional game on Windows 7 with bootcamp) and the 13" MBP does not have the power to process these applications. I need some advice based on the following options. 1) Have Apple replace the defective 13" for a replacement and hold off on the insurance purchase till the next iteration of the 15" is announced (next year). 2) Return the 13" and purchase the core i7 15" right now. 3) Have Apple replace the defective 13" and purchase a core i7 iMac for my power needs with the insurance claim. Any advice would be appreciated.
