Hi there! I have this dilema. I'm considering buying a MBP 13", but I'm not sure if it will fit my needs at all. Would you guys help me with the decision? I have a 4 year old Samsung laptop with the following specs: - Core 2 Duo T5600 @ 1,86 Ghz - 3 Gb Ram - 15" Screen, 1280x800 - Nvidia GeForce Go 7400, 256Mb (not shared) - 160 GB HD - 1 hour battery life (currently) - 2,7 Kg I think now's the time for a change, since my laptop is getting old and I'm really sick of carrying it arround all day. I was considering the MBP 13" because I really like its design, mobility and battery life. However I'm concerned about if it will fit my needs when it comes to power. Besides normal use, I'd like to run: - Poser (3D rendering - heavy use) - Photoshop (normal use) - Fireworks (heavy use) - No gaming nor video editing I'm currently capable of all that with my current laptop. Will the MBP 13 be able to handle that? Besides, I have this other questions: - 1280x800 pixels of resolution for a 15" screen is not enough. Is it for a 13"? - Is the MBP's Nvidia an acceptable graphics card (since memory is shared) ? - Since I already have a Core 2 Duo at 1,86 Ghz, will I notice much difference with the MBP 2,44 or 2,64? Here's a comparison chart (http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=40380,35568,27254,) What do you think? - Is it worth it to pay $300 for such a little increment in power (low-high end MBP)? Finally, and maybe the most important part. I'm from Spain, but I'll stay in the US till Christmas. Since I'm in a college I have this student discount, which added to the currency exchange, I could get the low-end MPB 13" for just 800, 2/3 the price I would pay for in Spain. This is really a good deal. In fact I'd like to wait for the update and maybe get an Core i5, but as I read, it's not planned till 2011 and I wouldn't be able to buy it in this conditions. So in conclusion the thing is, is it worth it to buy a MBP 13" at that price even if it's not a real improvement compared with what I already have? I'd like to hear your oppinions. Thank you guys in advance! Ferran PS: I'm not considering buying a 15" MBP because I think it's not enough portable for me.
