Alright, so I have a 2.4ghz Santa Rosa MBP, 2GB RAM, 8600GT already replaced once for failure, 250GB HDD, LED backlit, etc. I love it. But at the same time, I don't have applecare, am out of warranty, and there's technically only around 8 more months that apple covers the GPU replacement. I'm scared to death that it will happen again. It already happened once and I had to argue my way to a free replacement of a defective product. I could sell this for around $1300 and get a new $2500 MBP with student discount and APPLECARE this time, haha. OR I could save a bit more and get the Canon EOS 5D mk II. The 22 megapixel beast that takes the most absolutely impressive 1080p video i've ever seen. Oh, and it also takes pictures. This is ~$3000 though. ORRRR I have an Audi A3 and am a complete Audi nut. My car: I'd be looking at: some new wheels and tires, off of an Audi RS4 Front plate delete + blackout grill A new intake with some other goodies under the hood whatever else I can afford Obviously the MBP forum will say the macbook, but can I justify that purchase? I wish the res was higher as well as actual improved GPU performance. I also have a Mac Pro, but I do like to be mobile. I do a lot of freelance video work as well as photography, gaming, and general go anywhere usage. I don't care about the glossy vs matte debate, video can't be color matched on a laptop LCD anyways. I love the glass display. Any input?
