So here is my question: I am currently using my uMBP (specs in my signiture), I am mostly using it for school work (in college) using stuff like word, excel, nothing too strenuous. But I am a broadcast production major, and would love to use it for more then that. I have been saving up for a Mac Pro for a while and as they are pretty darn expensive am not very close to getting one. I have access to a Mac Pro at school, but only make it to the edit bay once a week or so, and not for personal projects. I would love to hone my skills and use the software I am learning more often. When I try to use my laptop I get frustrated using things like Final Cut, After Effects, and Photoshop. Do you guys think is is worth spending some money now on upgrading to 8GB of RAM (getting a bunch of page outs once I actually open FCP, CS5, etc.) and maybe getting one of those newfangled hybrid HDD's? It would definitely mean putting off on the Mac Pro for a while. Worth it? Or should I just continue to save and get a mac pro sooner rather then later? Thanks for your input.
