I am going back into further Education this autumn and I require to get a Macbook Pro for my course. Having been a Windows user I am looking for some advice on which one will be best for my usage. The course is in Film and TV production so will be using the laptop for film editing - Adobe especially After Effect, as well as the usual Office 365, browsing. Won't be using for it gaming. I have already purchased a external hard drive [LaCie Rugged 1TB] for backup and transfering work between the laptop and possibly University machine. Am I right in thinking whatever I choose it is then set, no way to upgrade the RAM etc? Can someone exact what it means in the description on the Apple site in regards to the Turbo Boost [ ie 2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz] is this something that you can only do sparingly? Or it is something you can switch/increase all the time, just seems a strange thing to show. Due to the outlay and hopefully will be using it for the whole of my degree course, not sure if I should be paying extra to future proof in regards to the specification as I don't want to feel two years down the right for example that there is not enough RAM for what I need to run newer versions of applications etc. I'm not sure if I should be looking towards the higher spec 13" or the entry level 15", also can anyone advise how much the student discount is when buying through the Apple store? I can't check due to not having my official student credentials yet, to logged to the site to check and from what I have read its not a set % over the whole store. Any help would be grateful.
