Im thinking of buying a Mac for studies. The student discount, plus the free (well £20) iPod touch is quite alluring. And 3% cash back doesn't hurt either. Im going for the 24" 3.06Ghz one, 1TB drive, 4GB Ram etc -- you know the stuff. I'll be using documents, email, a lot of browsing, a lot of photo management and HD video editing. And i will also most likely run Windows from time to time. (Maybe a lot as this will be my first Mac). I wouldn't hesitate, but as you can see above my last need is HD video editing. Will the core 2 duo be enough for this? Or should i wait until Macs go quad core?
