Unfortunately I have waited as long as I can. I am a student in the uk and I am getting a mac bought for me to support my study. Because it is a 1 year course I really need to make my purchase asap. I only got confirmation on funding a couple weeks ago so I waited til now encase we got an update but I think it would be silly to risk leaving it any longer in case they say it isn't a justifiable expense anymore (I can always exchange for a new one if they come out within 14 days of delivery) So I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and buy a mpb tomorrow. I want to use it for various things, one of which will be final cut pro. I take it I would be advised to get the 2.8Ghz over the 2.66Ghz, with it's better processor and GT with 500mb over the 256 in the 2.66Ghz model. do you guys think £200 extra seems like a justifiable expenditure for this extra power? Should I get the 7200 hard drive for an extra £40? Thanking you for your advice in advance.
