Hi MacRumors. I am currently looking into purchasing a new Macbook Pro since my current Macbook is falling apart . I am looking at the 13 inch models of the Macbook pro cause of the mobility. I am looking into either purchasing the Macbook Pro 2.3 GHz i5 or the 2.7 GHz i7 one. Though, I can't make up my mind on which one to get. I am going to be going to college next year and I will possibly majoring in broadcast journalism which could result in me having to use some higher end programs on my macbook pro. If I was to get the 2.3 GHz i5 macbook pro, I would be able to immediately upgrade it's RAM from 4GB to 8GB. I don't know if that makes a difference. Is it worth the extra $300 in my case to get the 2.7 or should I save the money? I want this Macbook to last me a while. Thank you a lot for your help in this!
