I have been debating between the current generation 15" Macbook Pro 2.53 Ghz and 2.66 Ghz models since WWDC. This will be my first Mac and I want something that will last 4 years. I really take good care of my stuff so I am hoping to make this last. My debate resides solely on the graphics card: -2.53 Ghz has a 9400M graphics card (integrated - which from what I told integrated graphics aren't that fantastic) -2.66 Ghz has both the 9400M graphics card and 9600M GT I've read thoroughly on MacRumors and have weighed the pro's and con's: -2.53 is $250 Cheaper (I will definitely be utilizing the EDU discount) -2.66 would be better for the future because it is sort of "future-proofing" my machine by allowing me the option to switch between the 9400M and the GT, which I was told would be great for future OS's (including Snow Leopard - I was told that it would run more smoothly on the 9600M GT) But on the other hand, should I just suck it up and spend the extra $250 and get the higher end one. On one side, I don't do any gaming or graphic design - I'm a Biology major with pre-med emphasis On the other side, I will be EXTREMELY broke over the next four years so I want to make sure I am making the right decision, considering you can't upgrade the graphics card down the road. I am a worrier and I am afraid I will be kicking myself in the future for not getting the 9600M GT... (What's $250 over the course of four years?) So basically I'm stuck with this computer for a long time and it is crucial I make the right decision. HELP! I need to make this decision final before Saturday (It will be tax-free weekend). I have the money, but just barely, I might have to borrow some money for books and misc. stuff for my dorm etc...(I'm paying for school myself) I will be asking for AppleCare for Christmas, so I have the proper coverage. But I would love some extra advice over the matter from you pro's at MR!
