I am currently looking at buying the new high end 15" MacBook Pro: 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 4GB 1333MHz 750GB 5400-rpm Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB GDDR5 I would mostly use it for broswing the web, creating and editing documents, light photo editing (photoshop elements), publishing (programs like In-Design and Studioworks), and moderately intense gaming (SCII, the upcoming GW2). I'd imagine this setup should adequately fit my needs - but I don't want to have to replace my computer for several (5ish) years. Would it be necessary for me to upgrade to 8GB of ram (via a third party)? Also I think I would upgrade to the high-res glossy screen, but I heard that doing so will lower your framerate while playing a game. Can you manually set your resolution to be lower while playing a game to increase its efficiency? How much of a drop in performance would there be between the standard and high res? Also, I don't really need a laptop at the moment - I'd just like to have one. Perhaps I should wait until Ivy Bridge for longevity? I imagine the high end 15" after the redesign will be quite impressive. What's your input?
