    Brief history

    Had a 2007 15" MBP (cant remember stats but it was the $2k one)
    In 2009 got the 2.26 13" C2D MBP

    Now getting a 2011 15" i7 MBP.

    I ordered the base model low end with high res screen (haven't received it yet) but now thinking I should have gotten the higher end one.

    What I do: I use my computer almost all day - web browsing, music, watching video, documents.

    Im beginning to program in xCode for iPhone apps (which is why the 13" screen size wasn't cutting it) and occasionally will need photoshop for graphics etc and iMovie for promotional videos etc.

    Almost zero gaming (havent played mac games yet as I have a ps3 xbox and iPhone)
    Will I be ok with the one I ordered or should I upgrade for my tasks?

    The low end will suffice, as you don't need a heavy GPU and the extra MHz will not make programming or watching YT faster.
