    Hi all,

    I am looking to buy a 15" Macbook Pro for my 15-year old daughter. The configuration I have found is:

    2.4GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core
    4GB of DDR3 RAM
    750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
    AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1GB Graphics
    15.4" LED-Backlit Glossy Display
    1400 x 900 Native Resolution
    Slot-Loading SuperDrive
    802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
    FaceTime HD Camera, Built-in Microphone
    May Ship with OS X Lion or Mountain Lion

    Obviously for a teenager she will be using it for facetime and the like. It would also be used for school work and games. She is not a big gamer, but does like the Sims 3.

    My first question is are the specs ok? And other than the memory, which I plan to upgrade to 8, is ther anything I should look for? Is 2.4 ghz enough or do I need to get a faster processor?

    Thank you in advance,

    George

    that sounds like a great machine, especially for her needs. That MBP would be more than capable

    Thank you both for your help.

    That specific one is $1300......but would it be smarter if I got the ones with the retina display?

    Thank you all again.
