alright, so i have the 1st gen macbook and im tired of it already. sure it has good enough specs but i think its not good enough for me already. its time for a new one. ive been eyeing at both the 15" and 17" i looked at the 15" with the 250gb hdd and 512mb vram. with my student discount, its going to be $2299. i saw the 17" and have been wanitng to purchase this. With the hi-res included, my total comes to $2686. That's about a $387 difference but for that much I can get 2 more inches and a higher resolution. My friends are telling me to go with the 15" and upgrade it to 4gb from there but I'm not too sure. I mean it makes sense because thats what I did with my macbook. Anyways, I do everything from video editing to picture editing...and gaming too. I work for a record label so I'm constantly on the go. I need something that can do everything I need. Which is a better deal...? I'm stuck on the 15" now but is the battery life equivalent to the 17" with hi-res? I guess it would be better to go with 15" then upgrade the ram and hard drive, right?
