Needed some opinions on which would be the better buy in the long run. This would be my first Mac. My budget is about 2k. I would be using it primarily for Video Editing - Final Cut, Premiere CS3-4. Also Photoshop. Speed and overall performance are probably the most important factors I'm looking into. How much faster is the new model then the previous gen? I was pretty much set on buying the updated MBP's when they came out, but didn't expect the screen change over to Glossy instead of Matte. I'm not exactly hell bent against the Glossy screen but color correction is a big part of Video Editing so if the new Glossy screen is inaccurate and reflective as other pro's have reported than it would make sense to but the previous gen. I've never really used a glossy screen for a long period of time, so I dont really now how good/bad they really are. All my computers have been Matte. The one main issue I've heard about the previous gen MBP, is the 8600 nvidia graphics card. I'm not familar with previous MBP's, so I'm not sure how big of deal this actually was, and how common the problem was or still is. So which would be the better buy? Save money and buy a NEW, previous gen on clearance, and take the risk of a possible failing 8600 card? OR Spend the extra money, and buy the current model which should be faster and perform better, and just try and get used to the new glossy screen? Sorry about the long read, any help would be appreciated.
