Ok, I know there have already been threads discussing this but I need some advice, so I am sorry for bringing it up again I am going back to uni next month (for my 3rd year) and as I now live further away from uni, I think I will need a laptop so I can go in the library and get work done, etc. So, I have narrowed it down to wanting a Mac (instead of a Sony or the like). But, I don't know which one to get. The main reason for wanting a Mac is the operating system, closely followed by wanting a 24" ACD. I will be using the laptop for word processing, video editing (mostly 2-4min adverts for church), web development, etc. Which of these would you go for (prices are rough HE estimates based on 14% discount)? 1) 2.26GHz 13" Macbook Pro @ £770 (£824 once upgraded Ram to 4GB) 2GB DDR3, 160GB HDD - Geekbench Score: 3140 2) 2.53GHz 13" Macbook Pro @ £998 4GB DDR3, 250GB HDD - Geekbench Score: 3436 3) 2.53GHz 15" Macbook Pro @ £1110 4GB DDR3, 250GB HDD - Geekbench Score: 3437 I have decided against the 2.66GHz because as much as I would like a dedicated GPU, I just cannot justify the extra cost. I would upgrade the hard drive on all options so can't really take that into account. I'm not really sure if the price is mega important, however, which will give me the best performance for the money? I have looked at Geekbench scores but they are pretty hard to compare, seeing as the 2.26GHz MBP is tested with 2GB Ram vs 4GB in the other 2, however, the difference between the 13" and 15" 2.53GHz is none existant, so is the larger screen worth an extra £100? If I was going for the higher end 13", I probably would consider the 15" but what I really want to know is will I notice much difference between the 2.26GHz and 2.53GHz?
