After a lot of reading and thinking, I have decided on a 15" Macbook Pro over the 13". It is now between the low-end and the mid-range model. $1599+iPod touch (that I would sell for $180ish im guessing) I would like to get Applecare and a 500GB 7200rpm HD as well. 15" 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory 250GB hard drive SD card slot Built-in 7-hour battery NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics or I could get the midrange model for $1699 (including ADC membership fees) 15" 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory 320GB hard drive SD card slot Built-in 7-hour battery NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics+NVIDIA 9600M GT with 256MB However, I wouldn't get an iPod touch with it and I would probably end up keeping the 320GB HD. However, I would still like AppleCare, which is like $165 on ebay. The difference between the two is 130mhz faster cpu, 70GB larger HD, and the addition of the 9600m GT. I am going to be a sophomore studying business, so I wouldn't use the 9600m GT much (except for the occasional game, but I have a nice PC too). I would like to get 3-4+ years out of this computer, which is why I am considering the mid-range model. Summary: Low end 15": $1599+$120 (HD)+$165 (applecare)-~$180(ipod touch)=$1704 Mid-range 15": $1699+$165 (applecare)=$1864 What should I do MR??
