So last night I ordered a 13 inch customized 2.3 ghz with a 500 gb hard drive and 8 gb of memory. I plan on downloading and learning some new programs like with photography and drawing and such. I am out of school but still do make presentations and all of that. I am not a gamer but can i still play some games and such if I wish? The 2.7 i7 just looks on paper to be much faster but much more money. i currently have a macbook 2006 but liked alot of the features that the 2011 MBP's offered that the macbook did not.
