Note: I'm not a native English, so there might be some grammatical/spelling errors ;-) -------- Hi there, I'm going to college next year, thus I'd like to have a laptop instead of a desktop solution. I'm quite sure I want a mac, I've heard pretty much only amazing stories about it, and at my school, they recently have bought a bunch of iMac's and I really love how it works. But, seeing as I will be travelling a lot and hopping from table to table a desktop is not an option. Also, emailed the college, and they definitely advised me a laptop. Because of this, I've come to the point of making my choice, which one? There's no need for a fast choice, my college starts in September, but I thought it would be handy to take enough time and make a educated decision. I definitely need the portability, so the 17" is out of the question. What my needs are: - Portability. - I'm into photography, so it has to be able to handle photshop/aperture smoothly. - Battery-life, the minimum is 7 hours on the MB, so it won't really be a problem, but i thought I'd mention it anyway. -Ability to play videos smoothly on my 24" 1920*1080 screen. - A (tiny) bit of video editing, but not the heavy stuff. Not very high on my request list. I figured the MB and the 13" MBP would be the best choices, hence they are most portable. Yet, I'm not sure if they are powerful enough to be able to play 24" full HD videos smoothly. Also, I'm not sure if they are powerfull enough to be able to 'snapy' photoshop heavy stuff. (12 mpix./RAW correcting/brushing/whatever) So basically my questions are: - Is the 15" MBP worth the extra €600? if not: - MB or 13" MBP? -edit: please elaborate your answers, it would help me very much in making my decision! Thanks!- I hope you guys/galls can help me shedding some light on these tough questions! Thanks!
