    So, i'll be running the Adobe creative suite and stuff, just wondering which Macbook Pro I should get?

    I know I want the 15", but don't know which one is best. I am a student so I am poor, but am thinking the i7 15" MBP sounds good. But am I going to use the bonus tech stuff or should I get a cheaper one?

    And does anyone from Australia know what would be quicker, buying it online now or in stores?

    I would get the base 15" and save the money towards RAM and SSD, they give you better performance than 260MHz

    That sounds smart!

    What is SSD?

    And is it worth dropping from the i7 to the i5?
