I have two questions....First, I was wondering if anyone knows if best buy is going to be carrying the i5 or i7 anytime soon? As of right now they only carry the base 3.0 dual core. Reason for asking, is best buy approved me and apple did not for some bogus reason! All I wanted to finance was half anyways.. Secondly, should i settle for the base 3.0? Im a new recruit into the mac world as this will be my first apple computer. Im mainly going to be using it to complete school, do a little photoshop work, and do some small time video editing...nothing major. I want the quad just for future adventures, but am anxious to get it asap!
