Hi guys. I just recently got a i7 imac to use as my main workstation to process my movies and raw photos via lightroom and final cut. I have a 2.33ghz 17in mbp from late 2006 that I want to replace as a portable solution while I am away from home to take notes and surf the web. I was thinking of selling my 17mbp and saving up a bit more cash and buying the base model 13in mbp. I do travel occasionally and want the ability to edit raw photos while away from home. Currently my 17in mbp runs adobe lightroom, but its extremely sluggish and not ideal to edit photos. The new base 13 mbp is only .07 ghz faster in clock speed, but the fsb and ram are all faster. Will I see any significant differences in my 2.33 17in mbp and the new base 13 mbp? My main question is will it run lightroom and photoshop with out the constant spinning beach ball? I was going to either get a 64gb wifi ipad or the 2.4 base 13in mbp. let me know what you guys think. edit: or will adding a ssd be a better route?
