Besides my sanity - and the HR AG screen, what am I losing here in terms of processing power, graphics and start up times? Some of you guys who follow my exploits will know that I just got this computer - and it is my dream computer! But alas...the economy, pressures from parents, marginal increases in need for portability, and bills...cannot be ignored any longer. I do photoshopping and illustrator, web design about 30-50 hours a month. I have an ssd in my optibay that I would bring over to the macbook so I hope I won't lose too much speed there. In all honesty, it is too much computer for me...but I love everything about it. Picking up a macbook from a member here for $600, so I will get a l lot of change back. Sigh. The economic times!
