Despite looking through windows laptops and comparing various specs and prices, i've finally decided on mac and just placed an order for the high end 15 inch mbp with ag, and i am starting to feel very guilty about this purchase. I'm starting to rethink my planned uses and logic of buying it in the first place. Should i just move to the 13 inch in terms of using it for school (Econ major, which isn't much) and personal daily computer as a replacement for my desktop. I would like to play some games but I've thought about it and i have an xbox for that, and the only game i will probably be playing is from the counter strike source era and l4d 2 or games older than these. But i do want my computer to last as long as possible as I'm using my current desktop for about 6 years and it wasn't that great to start with, and i was thinking that if i load up on specs now, my mbp will out live the lifespan of my current desktop. prices basically come down to high end 15 inch with anti glare $2339 (basically paying that 200 dollar difference for video card? low end 15 inch with anti glare $2114 the high end 13 inch $1537 If i go beyond that there are April 2010 models of 13 inchers for ~1000 My logic is that since the 15 inch is more powerful it will outlast the 13 inch. But will the life span of one mbp model at the price of ~1500 and a future mbp model at ~1500 outlast the high end 15 inch im buying now in terms of being outdated/slow/sluggish/laggy? How future proof is it really compared to a hypothetical future model of mbp 13 inchers? I've also heard something about intel coming out with ivy bridge(?) next year and this is the next possible update for mbp's within a year? But imo that is out of the question for my scenario as I'll be transferring to a university in the fall and will be living on my own but not far enough to stay there for anything longer than a month or two and i do not want to be constantly moving/plugging/unplugging my desktop around. But because of this increase in technology at such a fast rate, maybe the future proof of the 15 inch isn't all that necessary/plausible, which just comes to just being able to use the computer in the first place, and if thats the case maybe the 13 inch is ok then? And honestly how much gaming can i squeeze into my current schedule in college, i dont think i'll realistically be able to push in as much game time as i can with my current schedule and i can only imagine life to be more hectic after transfering. So maybe replace game with light gaming and watching videos/movies ? So maybe i've answered my own question and I should go for the 13 inch? what should i do? And this might sound contradicting but either way i will be spending a large majority of my time on my computer, if this is a factor or not. btw i use to play starcraft religiously for years before, and i'm not sure if i want to get into starcraft 2 or not but it is under my belief that only the high end 15 inch works well on it?
