    Hi,
    I would like to renew my white MacBook from mid 2009. I haven't decided yet but I have two options in mind, a MacBook Pro 15" from mid 2010 with an intel core duo i7 (I think it's duo) running at 2.8GHz with an integrated card, the intel HD 3000 and a dedicated card, Nvidia Geforce 330m with 512MB of dedicated VRAM, a month old mother board and battery and a hi-res anti-glare display with 7 months remaining of apple care all for £1000. My other option would be a new MacBook Pro 13" with a dual i7 locked at 2.9 GHz and no dedicated graphics card for £1035 from amazon.
    I would mainly use it for photo editing using Adobe programs and occasionally some video editing and video gaming.
    Which one do you think is more powerful?
    ps: I would use an external monitor, 8GB of RAM and an SSD on both
    Thanks
