I'm debating whether to get one of the old refurb mbp's 2.4 or 2.5 or to get a new mb w/ a free touch(or maybe even a refurb mb) I was just considering the 2.4 'cuz it's 1349, an okay price for a dedicated gpu. I was thinking the 2.5, just not sure an extra $150 is enough reason to go for double the vram, and a little bigger hd, and an eensy weensy faster processor. I also have been re-reading the nvidia 8600 graphics problem, and that apple has extended the warranty period for it, just not sure whether it's worth it to risk it or not. Here's what I'll be doing w/ my mac: Editing shorts for the foreseable future/hopefully features in the unforeseable future -Which means Final Cut Studio(mostly just straight editing, some use of Livetype), though I don't know how much I'll use Motion, as I've learned AE, and not sure how much I would use motion as I wouldn't be editing big budget sci fi/action films mostly drama/comedy/tragic shorts/films right now. -Adobe CS4 (mostly photoshop/illustrator/ae, some indesign in near future if have time) -Web design(dreamweaver) Thanks in advance.
