    i am entering an art school in December and it has come to my conclusion i need a better computer for the work i do in digital arts, photography and journalism. i am not sure what Mac to buy. i will be running light room and aperture and using final cut in the provided labs at the school. i am on a budget and i know i will need more than 80Gb but don't want to spend over 2500 at the most.:cool:
    so if anyone could assist i would be most thankful=)

    Keep in mind the HD and RAM in the MB are user upgradable but only the RAM in the MBP can be user serviced. If you decide on a MB, get the lowest HD amd RAM you can configure with and upgrade those later for cheaper.

    Ram and HD's can be found here:

    i was looking at MBs and the most expensive one
    * 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    * 1GB memory
    * 160GB hard drive1
    * Double-layer SuperDrive

    Ships: Within 24 hours
    Free Shipping

    seems pretty nice and good for the price so it won't bag me out of all the grant money
