Hi all. First let me explai what I mean. I have got 3 cats. Maine coons, which can get pretty bit. And my olderst is a 12 kg/26 lbs cat. And I have got an open space so nog seperate room where my cats cant come exect the bedroom but there I have got no room for a desk. So that means if to want to sniff on the white macbook (2.1 core2duo/4 GB) they can do so. Now I want to upgrade because. A. Aperture is becoming slow. Well it has been since i bought a DLSR with 21 MP resolution some 2 years ago) B. Battery is becoming quite bad and i am getting the warning to replace it soon C. The HD is becoming quite full. Yeah I know I can replace C and maybe still B(?) . But i would like to know what the best option is for me now. I have got 5 options. Budget is max €1800/€1800. Not interested in retina I use it for: Internet, watching tv series online and Aperture 2 A. Stay in the laptop devision and buy the latest MBP 13" option. I always will upgrade to 8 GB RAM. But can someone tell me if the I7 2.9 cpu is worth the premium over the I5 2.5 cpu. I know another difference is a bigger HD but I dont care for that as the 128 GB served me fine over 4 years and have got a 500 GB external B. Stay in laptop devision and go with a latest MBA. 256GB SDD/ 8GB RAM. And here is the question go with the 1.8 CPU or spend some more and get the 2.0 CPU C. Stay in the laptop devision and go with a 15" MPB and change nothing. So that means only 4 GB ram but a quadcore prosessor and a dedicated GPU D. Now the tricky option, Why? Well remeber the open space? I am afraid they bump it over. I am very sure Apple isnt going to say. Ow an accident, we will refund for you. Well that is what I read most of the time And I dont know if it is a good idea to move it to the bedroom when I am not at home. So that will be on a daily base. All the components are in there. I am talking about the Imac. In that case I will be going for the cheapest 27" model and leave it like that or go for the 21" 2.9I5. But I am wondering what to upgrade then. Should I upgrade to 16 GB RAM OR add the fusion drive? E.Is if I want a bigger monitor maybe the 'safest' option Apple TBD + Mac mini as the mini i can store in my drawer and the screen is just the screen what can stand in my bedroom without all the vital components in there But then I am wondering if I should go for the 2.5 dual core and add the 8 GB ram or should I go for the base quad core model but I only got 4 Gb ram then.
