I'm currently in college as a Visual Communications major. Junior level with emphasis being computer imaging. Ive noticed as I get get higher into the class levels that my 1st Gen. MBP is bogging down a bit. I'm thinking of purchasing a new computer after Christmas 09 but am wondering which one to choose for my situation. I want something that can handle what i throw at it once I get out of college and enter the workforce. Can a MBP handle the work load of a student about to enter the design world? or should i be looking into a mac pro for work? I've grown to the portability of my MBP but am wondering if a 15" or 17" MBP is enough power? Keeping up to date with design standards, I use CS4 regularly. Thanks in advance for any advise. Want to research now so I know what to expect later this year.
