Good afternoon MR Forums! Yes, Im new, and cannot wait to grab my first apple computer. I have everything BUT....a Mac... Im currently holding out for the 2012 MBP, in either 15" or 17" heres my usage: My torrents and stuff will still come from my Dell... as to not clog or slow my mac. Will be doing heavy photo editing, and some video editing. internet surfing (other than via ipad) i will be going top of the line processor (at the time of purchase) will be doing a 16gb ram upgrade at home, myself. undecided on HD, heard SSD are iffy for the long haul. Does everyone agree with me that for photo editing i would benefit from the 17" MBP or maybe the 15" will be enough. other than hardware, is there any performance difference other than size goes? i wanted the giant 27" iMac but wifey said no way.... lol Thank you!
