Hello, I stumbled on these forums when I was investigating on which Mac to buy. I've been following for a few weeks so I've narrowed my choice in what type of Mac I want to a MacBook Pro 15'. Here's a bit about what I want to do with it: I'm a first time Mac buyer. I've used them before, but have always been a buyer of HP and Toshiba. Haven't really had any major problems recently with my other computers so that's not the reason for the switch, I've just decided to give Macs a try based on advice and investigation. My last notebook was a Toshiba Satellite A 100 that has lasted me about 5 years and still going strong (though it needs a reformat). I'm handing it down to my dad to use and I'm in the market for a new lap top. I want to invest in a high end 15' not only because I want power, but I want to be able to use it for the long-term. I figure if I'm investing in something it might as well be in the vicinity of top-line. I'd like to be able to game on it also and I know there have been labels attached to Mac's and gaming in the past, but it seems that Mac's are more than capable of handling most high-end games (at least from the information I've gathered). This is basically where the need for high-end comes in, as I'm not so much into the whole editing video's/pictures (though I do some of that stuff, and will likely do more of it in the future). The 15' seems like the way to go if I want to do gaming on it. If I want to throw a potential game I'd want to run would be maybe, Star Craft 2 for example (though they don't have Computer Requirements for it yet). Now, to get to my question which 15' is better suited for me: 2.8GHz vs. 2.66GHz. I'm not very fluent with computer technology term (I know the basic stuff like processor speeds, RAM and things like that) so try and dumb it down as much as possible for me . Money is not a huge issue for me, but as most would expect I'd rather not pay top dollar if I can help it (as in, there isn't much difference between two things). And yes, I understand there is an upgrade coming out for the MacBook Pros and I will be waiting for it to come out as I'm in no rush to buy a new notebook right now. Thanks in advance, hopefully my post made sense. Tried the search function, didn't really give me the answers I was looking for, so sorry if it's been discussed before.
