So yeah next year I will follow a study multimedia design and I am currently doing freelance web and logo design. Also, I do need a new notebook. I was wondering if the MBP would be right for me. I will travel for about 2 hours everyday from home to school and vice versa. The current thing I am wondering about is the GPU, I mean come on, 256MB?! Or am I missing something here? My dad isn't convinced yet, he has been using windows all his life (Just like me, but I can get used to OSX pretty fast) and doesnt see a point in paying 300,- extra for 256mb extra GPU. Anyway to convince him to a Mac? He will be taking part in investing in it anyways This laptop has to last me for the next 5 years, atleast. Any good customizations? (Typo?) Programs I will be using; Photoshop Illustrator Flash AfterEffects + Some other heavy programs And all the others of CS5? I don't think I will need it for gaming, I can step away from that habit Thanks for your help, Great forum! Hope I can contribute to if I finally got mine.
