Hi everybody. I am about to buy a new laptop for college and i have one question. I have searched on various websites for the past days, and found plenty of articles and such, but as we know its difficult to compare processors over different generetions. I don't know whether to buy the macbook pro 13" i5 with the upgraded 2.6 processor and 16gb ram - or the i7 2.8 with standard 8gb ram. It is absolutely the same price, but what will give me most power for my needs? Right now i have the last of the white macbooks with 2.4 dual core and 2gb ram. I have monitored my task manager, and im lagging in both processor power as well as ram (constantly filled up). The little "beach-ball-waiting-logo" comes up constantly, even though im just typing this message (with 8 tabs in firefox + itunes running). I am going to run some physics simulations, and use it for mathematical work at college. Nothing extreme though. I am also going to produce some low-end simple music through logic pro x, all together with listening to music through itunes (i have a big library). Then im going to be programming a bit php,c++,xcode for fun, with some borderlands 2 gaming and maybe counter strike or something like that for fun once in a while. My old white macbook is really slowing me down, and i dont know whether to choose the new haswell 13" 2.6 ghz i5 with 16gb ram, or the 2.8 ghz i7 with 8 gb ram - it is the SAME price with edu-pricing. I do not want to buy the 15" because it's simply too big a screen. Thank you very very much!
