About ready to pull the trigger on my first ever Mac and going with the MacBook Pro. Budget is so that I need 16 gb Ram and 256 is good but am not sure about processor. I can go with 2.4 i5 or 1.7 i7 and stay in budget. The 2.8i7 upgrade blows it. If you had to pick with those which is best? I don’t know enough about i5 vs i7 to know which.
