Good morning to all from sunny FL! I am stuck with a dilemma and I hope that maybe you guys can help me a little bit. I purchased a 13" i5 MBP from Best Buy about a week ago. It is my first Mac computer and I can't believe I have waited this long. I have iPhone 5 and Retina iPad and Mac was the only computer I was looking at. Now I have several questions. 1) My local Best Buy has an open item 15" i7 MBP for 1499, 1600 with taxes.. It comes with 4gb, however I already purchased 8gb for my 13", so I would uprage RAM on that immediately. I am a geek by nature. I enjoy experimenting with various OS (I was running Linux on my last laptop), trying different software, and learning new things. I purchased 13" because of the price mainly and it will be portable for schooling. However now I am wondering if I should upgrade. I have always wanted to learn Photoshop, but never had a powerful enough computer. Also I would like to learn iMovie and/or Final Cut for home videos. Will i5 13' with 8gb of ram be sufficient enough? And will I notice the different in performance between i5 and quad core i7? I would like to learn that software but not sure how often i will be going at it, so my doubt is that those extra 2 cores wont be used. But in the long run I feel like an i7 will stay relative a lot longer than the current i5, considering i7 can be upgraded till 16gb of RAM 2) I am getting married in 40 days, and my future wife and I will be purchasing a DSLR camera. Will my current macbook be powerful enough to keep my photo library organized with some editing? Probably will get a bigger screen to keep it in the office at home for editing purposes. 3) Anyone else notice their iPad laying useless to the side after buying a MacBook? =) Thank you in advance!
