Hi, i've jus sold my long serving 800mhz quicksilver g4 tower and i am now looking for a new mac, i was intending on waiting till april, but the right money was waved in front of my nose and now i am macless. I've got a dell 24" wide screen, which is ace, so i'm looking for something to plug it into. The mac will be a home machine, doing light to medium cs2 work and web work, as well as normal home computer stuff. So i'm caught between the two 15" mbp and the mac pro, as i dont think this mid range mac will ever be made, or not anytime soon! Up to this point i have never needed a portable, but as i tend to make my machines last 6 years you never know ( I'm still quite early into my graphics career). Saying that in six years i can keep upgrading the mac pro? Also, will i see any big difference in the two different graphic cards in the mbp, I dont play games, but i do watch dvds and tv on my mac. Your help would be great. P.s is there any chance of a price drop at the end of Jan? as i can wait a bout a month?? Cheers.
