So I am replacing my SR 2.2 15'' MBP with a new unibody one mostly because I want to ditch this graphics card before it fails on me....again (probably out of warranty the second time). So I am looking at the 2.66 MBP and the 2.8. Initially I was going to go with the 2.8 because of the graphics memory, but I am somewhat hesitant to do that now since it is based on the older processor. I am really enamored with the new battery life in the laptops and I want a long running and cool laptop. So basically I have to choose between higher graphics memory or a newer chip. I will be using the normal arc programs (AutoCAD, revit, Maya, Adobe Suite, and Rhino). I was wondering how much that extra graphics memory would be a big asset here, more than enough to make up for the processor. I assume the 2.8 proc in the 17'' is the same as well (I have considered it for screen real estate but its size is a turn off....I have a 23'' ACD to work with, but arc on the go could be nice). Also I don't know if anyone has any experience with this, but are SSD's especially useful for these programs, as the 128 is pretty cheap now, I just don't know if I will be able to fit everything since I have to dual boot Thanks for all of the help.
