    Hey guys I'm contemplating on wether I should buy a Macbook pro 15 next year around november or just upgrade my macbook. I currently have a White Macbook 2007 model T7400 Core 2 Duo Merom 2.16Ghz 2.50Gb 120HDD with 10.5.8 installed. So if I upgraded I would buy 1 or 2 Gb extra ddr2 667, Mac OS X SN 10.6 and 320GB 2.5" Western Digital 'Scorpio BLACK' 7200RPM SATA plus 55/60w 5600mAh battery. the total is less then $200. Would I be saving money since My macbook does pretty well in video encoding and maya 2009? I did some video benchmarks and it did pretty well against my sis hp which has 4Gb ddr3 2.20ghz c2d Penryn 7200rpm 250gb HDD & win7.

    Agreed. If you don't need to replace it now, just do an upgrade. Then you can upgrade as newer technology comes out and your MacBook becomes more obsolete.
