    Hi, I plan on purchasing a 15" MBP today and was wondering if the high-res display is worth it, and if it impacts battery life. Also is the upgrade to 8gb of ram a good decision (cost/value wise?)

    Oh and who has used One to One? Don't know if I want to pay $100 for someone to transfer files from one laptop to another...

    Yes.

    The high resolution display is really worth the money. Any sunlight does not show up on your screen and the resolution is remarkable. The transfer of files should be free though. If not just grab a hard drive and do it all yourself

    You could use Migration Assistant from your old laptop. Apple released a Windows and Mac version of it very recently.

    High res Anti-Glare is the way to go.

    I wish you could get this screen on the MBA.

    I wasn't sure about the anti glare display as what I read online said the glossy display has more vivid colours. I was just thinking the hi-res glossy, or is that somewhat of an oxymoron?

    nahh it's not an oxymoron.

    If you're a graphic designer, you want the best resolution you can get. It's better to have more screen real estate.
