Yes, I know I made a thread like this earlier, but it seems that I have a smaller budget due to the iPhone coming up. My question is: Should I get the 2.2ghz 15'' MacBook Pro with a 23'' Apple Cinema Display or a High-Res 17'' 2.4ghz MacBook Pro. Each configuration costs exactly the same, give or take a penny . Know that I'm not in graphic design, and I won't be using any "professional apps." I just need a new replacement for my 1.6ghz iMac G5. All I want to do on the new machine is.. Microsoft Office and iWork for school LOTS of Safari and Firefox windows open for web browsing occasional iMovie/iPhoto for fun iTunes Mail Watching, Streaming, Downloading, and Playing DVD Movies Gaming ONLY if the computer is capable of running good quality games (its not a priority (I have an Xbox 360 for that) One of the most important things is that I like having LOTS of apps and windows open at the same time without having the whole computer slow down or 'chug.' Thanks!
