Okay I am planning on getting a MBP next year when I am a Junior in highschool. I will have to pay for it since I do not feel like waiting until I graduate for my parents to buy it. What I was planning on getting was: - 15" 2.6GHz(Is it even worth it to step up from 2.4 to 2.6 for $250?) - 250GB HDD @ 5400RPM - 2GB Ram(4GB is insanely priced high) - Glossy I was just curious if this is a good computer setup, I will be using it for Programming using Xcode, and just music software like Frooty Loops and probably some graphic designing and probably doing bootcamp for games(NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics with 256MB SDRAM). But what I really want to know is between now and this time next year do you guys think that a new model or new features will be released? And if I get this MBP this time next year do you guys think it would last through college since I am going to college for a bachelors in Computer Science and will need this laptop all 4 years. I am not made of money so it will have to last me a long time and I think stepping up to 2.6GHz might be good for future games and software.
