I have Zero interest in gaming on my Macs, I use Aperture a little, Adobe CS3and Final Cut Express a little. Other than a bit of future proofing would the high end MPB with the better video card do anything for me. (not concerned with the minor processor and hard drive upgrades either) I am not really concerned about future proofing, I rarely keep a machine over 2 years. Main concern is am I wasting $500 in going with the high end model. It seems like the low end MBP would suit my needs just fine. I just wanted to get a few other opinions.
