I am really stuck in what I want. Let me first give you info about myself. I am currently a undergrad college student. I want to replace my current desktop which is an 20" 2.4 GHz aluminum iMac. I want to keep the power but want the portability. I like big screens because small screens make me feel a tad bit cluster phobic. But the desks at my school are kinda small. So I'm worried that by having a 15" will not be sturdy. Also since the 13" have SATA 1.5 I may want to get an SSD later when prices drop. Edit: I have Safari(TONS of Videos), iTunes, Mail, and iChat running with everyday use. I occasionally use Photoshop, Sims 3, and iWorks(When needed for school). With that being said here are my choices and prices: MacBook Pro: 13" 2.26 GHz, 2GB Ram, 160GB HDD, SD Card Slot, Serial-ATA 1.5, (8GB Ram Max) + free 8GB iPod Touch = $1099 Refurbished 15" 2.4 GHz, 2GB Ram, 250GB HDD, Dedicated Graphics Card, Express Card Slot, (4GB Ram Max) = $1349 Refurbished 15" 2.54 GHz, 4GB Ram, 320GB HDD, Dedicated Graphics Card, Express Card Slot (4GB Ram Max) = $1449(I feel this is a great deal because of the upgrade of Ram and HDD) Hardware Upgrades I want: Seagate 500GB 7200RPM HHD = $139.99 OR Seagate 320GB 7200RPM HDD = $89.99 OWC 2x 2GB Ram (4GB ram) = $64.99 External Display later in my llife(but sooner if I get it the 13"): HP2519m 21.5" LCD = $189.99 mStand = $49.99 Software: Microsoft Word 2008 Snow Leopard VM Ware(if needed) Windows XP, Vista, or 7 Adobe Photoshop CS4 Any info would be helpful. Aloha.
