Hi, I'm moving soon, I was wondering, does anyone have a macbook pro as their only machine. i have always had 2-3 machines, but, again, I'm moving. I would like to just have one machine, and have it be a macbook pro (I do not have a laptop currently) I used the powerbook g4 religiously, and sold it to get the macbook pro a couple years back (17 incher) I really liked it, but as I also upgraded to a mac pro, I no longer used it as much and sold it. I spend most of my time using photoshop / lightroom and edit photos / create graphics on the regular. I also enjoy watching movies in itunes and surfing the web. I also do some video work, dabble in 3d (no dynamics, no high res textures, so no real "need" to have 256 over 128mb) I do not play games, but I do use my computer a good part of the day, maybe 8-14 hours a day. I'm wondering how a macbook will hold up to that kind of use, how well the new santa rose monitors are for color correcting (I have a 48inch 1080p TV that I currently use as my monitor, and will continue to use, but would like to work on my laptop when I'm not at home) I also plan on using the laptop for tethered shooting, and again, this will be my ONLY machine. I already sold my Mac Pro, and displays. I now have my pc workstation, and I will be getting rid of it as soon as the macbook line is refreshed, or the end of march, whatever comes first. I was thinking of buying the 17inch. But I can get by with the low end 15inch I'm sure. I plan on upgrading the ram to 4gb (or whatever the new max may be on the new machines) and buying a 7200RPM drive. 90% of the time, it will be plugged into my 1080p display at home. The rest of the time will be at a clients location, motel, or a friends house. I like to work on my photos when I'm out, doing sharpening, effects, and color correcting. But honestly, in the past, the most I do on the go is organization / rating / and tedious tasks like that. Would you recommend this laptop? Will it work for me? I'm slightly paranoid about having just one machine. Also has the heat problems gone down? Any good ways to get rid of this problem if not? My past 17incher got so hot I could only use it for short amounts of time. My macbook (1 gen) would just pass out (cut off) when it started doing a lot of work (batch render, batch encode). Any thoughts / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. But I think the intro level Macbook would suit my needs fine.
