I was originally thinking of getting the 20" iMac Core Duo, but then somehow got pulled back into wanting a laptop. I really like the idea of having a computer that I can take to school with me. I could get so much more done!!! I spend around 8-10 hours a day on computers a day and am sick of my school's eMacs with 256 MB RAM. I am also thinking about when I move to NYC in 3-4 months and it seems like a laptop would be a nice thing to have in the city. I have a budget of $3100 if I sell everything in my thread (about 4 or 5 items) along with the $2000 I am getting from my grandma in 2 weeks. I had everything set and planned for the iMac and then BAM!!! I just got suddenly attracted to the MBP and really want one. A few key things... -I use Adobe After Effects a bunch -Also CS2 suite -FCP Studio I know the Apple Pro apps wont even run until the universal versions are released. Is that going to be in March or April (sure hope so)? And finally, is there much of a difference between the two in terms of speed/ graphics? Is the 128 MB graphic card a piece of junk? I want to play World of War Craft on it and would hope it could handle it. I don't see many people in the forums going for the 1.83 Ghz MBP, is there a reason why? Will I be able to upgrade the graphics card down the road? I wish I could afford the 2 Ghz model, but I would have to sacrifice a lot to get that. After adding accessories and a 20" Dell Monitor I come in around $3150 with the 1.83 Ghz model, but with the 2 Ghz model I can't afford the extra monitor or most of the accessories. Here is the PDF of my shopping list: (keep in mind I get a student discount and the monitor, extra GB of RAM from OWC, and some other stuff isn't on the list. Edit: title should be "Would feel guilty.."
