Hey all, I'm headed off to uni in the fall and I'll (hopefully) be getting a spiffy 15" MBP to take with me. Right now, it all depends on whether or not I can get in a decent argument for one, and that includes price, components, etc... I'll be an animation and graphic design student. I feel like the baseline 15 (2.4 GHz, 256MB graphics card) won't quite cut it. I've ogled the high end 15 for its 512MB graphics card and the i7 2.66GHz, but I'm not even sure how much of a difference I'll notice between the three of them. I'll have to dual-boot the computer with Win7 (maybe using VMWare or Parallels, but I don't know much about either of them) Programs I KNOW I will use: Photoshop Dreamweaver Flash Illustrator Blender (free 3D animation program) I tend to multitask a lot, just fyi, but it all boils down to this: What differences would a graphic design/animation student notice between the 256MB and 512MB graphics cards, and what difference between the i5s and i7s?
