Hi, I have a 2.4 GHZ Penryn MacBook Pro with the 8600M GT. I am in a dilemma. I plan on going to Germany for my Senior year in the 2010-2011 year. I also don't want to spend a lot of money on a whole new laptop going into college. I am just wondering if this current MacBook Pro, if I maxed it out to 6 GBs of RAM (it has been reported these MacBook Pros can handle up to 6 GBs of RAM safely), 500 GB HD, etc. can it handle everyday use, 2-3 years from now as a main computer? My main uses: -web browsing, this includes Youtube, Facebook, Myspace, Hulu, etc., will I be able to use all the new and flashy features of these websites with ease? -iTunes, will it be able to handle all the new features of iTunes with ease? -Moderate gaming, will it be able to handle new games 2-3 years from now without all the bells and whistles? -Schoolwork, this includes spreadsheets, word typing, GIMP, etc. will this current hardware still be supported? -iLife, I use a lot of the iLife apps, such as iWeb and iPhoto, will this current hardware still be supported and work without giving up any new features? -Will I be able to use all the new features of the new OSes Microsoft and Apple come out 2-3 years from now? -Is the hard drive user-upgradable? Thank you!
