First off, im a student whose a freelance webdesigner. Im fully convinced to buy this years MBP since what i work on atm is either my desktop ( but i need a laptop @ school/clients ) and windows on a 3rd party laptop drives me insane. So i saved all my money to buy a proper MBP, the high end 15 inch one. I can buy this at my local store with alot of discount due to a family member working there ( 13% ) which makes it 1850 euro's for me instead of 2150 euro's. MBP local store : 750gb 5200 RPM HDD 1440x900 glossy res release 11th of march But i really have the feeling that 1440 is really low, im a new mac guy, im used to high end windows laptops and i always work on 1920x1080. My primair programs are Photoshop CS5, Illustrator CS5, notepad . Reading trough 1381293419419124912 posts on macforums about to buy or not to buy hi-res it made me doubt that for graphic design a hi res screen is pretty important ( reminder : i dont photo or video edit a lot , webdesign primair ). The big problem is, the discount. If i would buy it at the apple store i would get a 6% discount ( student ) which would make 2150 euro 1960 euro + 100 euro for hi res = 2160 euro. MBP apple : 500 gb 7200 rpm 1690x1050 hi-res glossy ships today So basicly what im asking , what would you do in my situation? - Webdesigner - Limited money Pay 300 euro extra for a hi-res screen or stop whining and accept 1440x900 is fine!?
