I don't know if this is the right place for posting this, so anyways. I am in a kind of a fix here. I need to buy a MacBook, and I dont know which one to buy. My budget is strictly $1499, or the price of a 13 inch i7 MacBook Pro. I use applications like Photoshop, Audition, and After Effects, and play games, but none is hardcore. In theory, I do download a lot of stuff, and my internet usage per month is roughly 60 GB, but most of it would be files which I can transfer to an external hard disk. Earlier, I was keen on buying the $1499 MacBook Pro, but after going to the Apple store, I am in a fix. I am not sure anymore. And seeing that I have more knowledge about Macs than any of the guys at the Apple store, it wouldn't really be smart asking them for advice. I do install a lot of applications, but most of them are one-time things, like when you go on a shopping spree, I download them once, use them, and they are never opened again. Also, I will be getting a 3-4 TB external HDD. It just isn't coming to me now what I use my computer for. But most of my time is spent on Chrome I would say. I do some programming and stuff every once in a while, and sometimes I run VM's, but come to think of it, I dont really do anything that requires a whole lot of power, apart from running BOINC, which I can keep running on my hackintosh back at home. I am not really good at this. What do you think I should buy? Please ask me questions first, as I don't really know what information I should give beforehand, or anything else. I'd rather say ignore all of whatever I wrote above and do it from 0.
