Hey guys, in the next days/weeks I am going to buy my first MBP and I thought that I should ask some questions first. In less than a month I am moving to The Netherlands for my MSc in Finance. I want a laptop mostly for studying PDF files for college, spreadsheets in Excel and net browsing, multimedia use etc when I have some time to spare, so no video or image editing or anything really demanding. At first I thought that I would go for the base 13'' MBP + monitor etc, but probably I 'll stay there for 1 year at most, and moving a monitor + mouse/keyboard wherever I go next might be a hassle, so I thought that maybe I should go for the 15'' base model and nothing more (that's my first dilemma). The second dilemma is between the 15'' base model for $1699 from Amazon VS almost $1988 for the 15'' base MBP + hi-def AG + $100 gift card via educational discount through Apple Store. So the extra $135 for the AG will eventually cost me a lot more due to state taxes etc. The gift card is definitely a "+", but still I don't know if it could convince me. The thing is that I don't have an Apple Store nearby and I don't know if I should pay that much for an AG monitor. The only one that I' ve seen is the glossy one and I wasn't impressed, so I just expect that the AG will be more appropriate for me. Do you think that the cost of upgrading to a hi-def screen will be worth the extra $$ according to my needs? I just want a screen that will be easy on the eyes because I will have to study a lot and that's my main concern. Any thoughts from people with relevant experience? Thanks in advance.
