I'm looking at getting my first Mac and I'm looking at the MBPs. I'm leaning toward the 2.2, but I want to be sure before I buy. From what I can tell, the only difference between the two is the video card and the processor. I just don't know if it's worth the extra 500 bucks just for that. As for my uses, I'm not a huge power user right now, but that could easily change. I don't anticipate doing much gaming, but I'm looking at buying a Digital SLR and I'd like to learn about PS. Also, I might get more into video editing in the future. I'm the type of guy who doesn't buy all that often. I've been using my desktop for almost 3 years and I plan to continue using it for a while. So in other words, I want this product to last. Really the only thing that makes me nervous (push to get the high end 15") is the video card. 'Cause if I feel I need more later on I can't get it. I can only up the RAM. So what do you guys think? Also, should I get the AppleCare? I really doubt I'll use the phone service, so that won't really matter, but is it worth it for the extra two years warranty? Wouldn't most problems crop up the first year anyway?
