Which 15in MBP (old vs new)? Being a recent college grad who is quite frugal, I am looking to save some money while also buying my first Mac. As an individual who has worked in the IT field since high school, I have supported Apple products, and I am quite familiar with the ins and outs. My Dilemma is this: -Do I buy a previous Generation Macbook Pro 15in -Or Do I buy a next generation Macbook Pro 15in? Because I often do graphic design (for side work) and mid level gaming, I would like the 9600M GT / 9400M combo. The price points I have found on Apple and on other sites for the previous Gen(2.4Ghz w/1066MHz DDR3) with that combo range from $1300-$1400. My only complaints with this system is the lack of expandability to 8GB, weaker battery (this could be a deal breaker), slower processor (does not really matter). The new Macbook Pro 15in offers (theoretically) up to 2 more hours of battery, expandability up to 8GB, an SD card slot(do not care), and an improved LED-backlit display with 60 percent greater color gamut. Even with my corporate discount of 7% from the apple store, my total price for the new MBP 15in is just under $2,000 (tax included). I guess for now this is a waiting game. I need to see the reviews, and what apple says about the expandability of the old MBP. I hope I do not wait too long and loose a chance at getting an older MBP if the expandability is addressed with a firmware update or something. I mean as many have said, the motherboard, memory type, and CPU seem to be pretty much the same between these 2 MBPs. What are your thoughts and suggestions?
