So, I am considering just going ahead and getting a current Macbook Pro 15in. I have been authorized at work to just go ahead and get whatever I need as far as a new computer goes. And really, anything goes. I would be using it with CS3 (mostly Photoshop, as I am starting to sub out my InDesign work.), OpenOffice (to be compatible with our Windows users who have already switched to OOo), Aperture and Final Cut Express. The rest of my work is mostly internet research, and we use Zimbra for email and calendaring, so that will not be a problem. Now for my question ... is it worth it to go ahead and get the 2.6 processor, and will I notice it with Photoshop and FCE? I am going to upgrade the HD to a 7200 rpm drive and RAM to 4 GB as well. I would get the 2.5 if the 2.6 is not going to make much of a difference. I will probably go ahead and do this, as I cannot think of anything that could be added in the next revision that would be of benefit to me except for support for more RAM, which would be beneficial when rendering, however, most of the stuff I will be doing with be creation of stuff for the web. Thanks.
