Okay so i have got myself a new MBP and I am amazed at it its so amazing compaired to my windows machine. The more I read this forum the more i see people have go the i7 route I didn't go i7 as I felt it was not needed for my usage I mean I might use aperture at some point in my life but not extensively it wold be just to play with photos. I guess my question is should I be happy with the 2.53 i5 that I have or should I return and cough up the extra £150 for the i7 variant? Or should I saved that £150 and go for more ram or SSD's? after all its only 0.13ghz extra ? geekbench put is as 448 points more. I have mroogled and googled the death out of this, I am just looking for a no crap answer to will i see a difference in every day usage as all I do is calc, itunes, iphoto, sync my iphone4, ical, mail, safari, imovie when bored, and maybe in the future possibly some apperture when i get a better camera or my girlfriend does, I just don't know enough yet about macs to know if what I have is enough or not. Thank you all for replys I must appolgise for my fickleness in these matters but you guys seem to be the best source of real world answers I can find. ps. my girlfriend told me to shut up n be happy with what i've got or she is going to bash me on the head and bury me in a back garden, so if anyone wants to save my life cheers.
