Hey, whats up? ... long story short like most people on this site who have had and still are having bad experiences with windows. I was first going to build a computer but i thought why would i put myself through this torture again sure it would run faster for the price but to me i like to broden my horizons and try new things. Also I got some b-day money and i plan on getting a small loan from my parents for a brand new macbook pro (13 inch). I figured now was the perfect time because i know someone in university who i can put the macbook's name under and get a free iTouch!!!!!! plus save $100 off the cost. So I was browsing the new prices and I plan on ordering it this weekend so I needed to make up my mind on the speed(cpu/processer) I need. I plan on having 4 GB of ram and 250 GB HD. The main use out of it would be for a few adobe programs such as: Dreamweaver, Flash Professional, Photoshop, Fireworks, Indesgin. Also I plan on having MS Office for compatiblity, iWork, Final Cut Pro (not using it to its full potential just simple things like green screening and some graphic effects), Skype, Msn, Virtual desktop (if thats what its called where you run windows within your mac in a window), and firefox. Should I go with the 2.26 ghz or the 2.53 ghz configuration I'm leaning towards the 2.26 but I feel it will be too slow and i might somewhere down the line regret it? I do have a second question which is very simple. What information is needed on the apple site to prove your a university student and get the iTouch/$100 discount because i need to ask the person i know for that stuff so i can have it this weekend? THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!!
