    I'm getting a Macbook Pro and I'm not sure which one to get. It will not be my primary machine as I have a custom built i7 Win7 rig so I will be using it when I want to use mac software and when I'm out and about. The 17" is ruled out because of portability and cost and so is the i7 15" becasue of cost. I'm not sure if I should get the 13" 2.4, 13 2.66 or the 15 i5. I'm a web designer so I will be using most of adobe CS5 (Dw,Ps,Ai mainly). Will the resolution on the 13" be good enough? Will I notice a difference between the 2.66 and the 2.4?

    13" is fine but you really want bigger display thus 15" with hi res screen is IMO the best one for you. Creative Suite is RAM intensive so upgrading RAM to 8GB from aftermarket would be a good idea (only 250$)

    Dreamweaver isn't a lot of fun on a low res screen, so as per the previous poster I'd suggest a high-res 15"

    4 GB RAM will be just fine for most things and in my experience the 13" will run it just fine, but you will want an external display or the 15" high res to have all the panels and crap on your screen comfortably.

    Agreed. The standard 1440x900 15" resolution would be good but the hi-res screen would be great.
