Like many people here I waited for these macbooks for like forever, I was patient enough to wait for the macbook refresh for 4 long months! My last macbook crashed of unknown causes one year and a half after purchase :/ (no apple care... no warranty, rest in peace macbook / motherboard and HDD fried). I will therefor take a warranty extension for my coming MBP 400$ (aouch), by the way I think that one year of warranty (i guess it is still the same for the new MBs) is pretty bad for those notebooks, when you know that even the cheapest notebooks get at leat 2 years of warranty... (my 250$ eee Asus pc for instance) But that's not why I'm here. I am wondering which MBP to chose? Are the additional 500$ worth it? I'm not using the MBP for any special things (at least not for now) but I like things to get done quick and also like to have a bunch of applications running all at once and I'm spending a lot of time in front on my computer that's why i'm investing in a MBP. Maybe in a few i'd like to do some music on it and some photo / movie edditing... I guess my primary concern is about the 2 MB RAM, I'm wondering if this is enough for a MBP? 2 MB is standard today, isn't it? I'm also interested in the difference between a 256MB graphic card and a 512 MB one? Does it make like a huge difference? I don't care much about the HDD size but i'm wondering if the upgrade to 7200 rpm is worth the extra 50$? Thank you in advance for your answers! In any case I'll buy a 15 inch MBP for Xmas!
