So. . .was set to sell my 2.4 MBP from early 2008 (santa rosa) and pick up a new MBP. . .given the sale and deal on the new one it would be $400 out of pocket for the new machine. However, as I started looking around, etc. .seems there may not be a real good reason to spend an extra $400 bucks. . . I use my machine 8-10 hours a day for work and play, few hours a day of pretty heavy VMWare usage (demoing/coding some intensive db apps), ILife, Photoshop Elements, a little gaming and a lot of airplane travel. Any thoughts here?
