Hello all, maybe someone can help me. At the moment I am thinking about buying my first real mac for christmas. My Situation is the following: I am a student and have two hackintoshs, they work fine, except for the updating part... I already read through some of the threads here and now I am a little concerned about future macs. My original Plan was to buy a macbook pro 13" next year in summer when lion comes, but now I read about Sandy bridge, maybe no nvidia graphics/instead ati in the better pros and the possibility of flash-hd only. The thing is I don't want an ati-graphics-macbook I hate ati, every pc with ati-graphics I owned, crashed, the ones with nvidia are still running. I could go on with my concerns about sandy bridge(I don't really think integrated graphics can are such good idea.), the flash-hd(too expensive), but I am just going to ask two questions: If I am going to buy a macbook pro 13" now, how possible will it be to upgrade to lion? During some of my courses I will have to work with some Adobe-Products (Premiere, Photoshop,Soundbooth). Can I hook my 20"-external-DVI-screen onto the macbook pro, and work there with those products? P.S.: I am from Germany so please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes.
