Hi, here is another "which MBP should I get" thread. I will just be using it for typical home use, Internet, some documents, some video, no gaming, and I may try to store some movies on it if Toast really works. I'd like to have a decent movie library to put movies on my iPad. I'm looking at three models at B&H Photography. Two are the October models and one is from the most recent release. Resale value in 4-5 years is a small consideration. I am just now replacing my old MacBook from 2007. 1. MD313LL/A $1049.00 Product Highlights 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 Dual-Core 4GB of DDR3 RAM 500GB 5400rpm Hard Drive Intel HD 3000 Graphics 13.3" LED-Backlit Glossy Display 1280 x 800 Native Resolution Slot-Loading SuperDrive 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR FaceTime HD Camera, Built-in Microphone Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (64-bit) 2. MD314LL/A $1199 Product Highlights 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 Dual-Core 4GB of DDR3 RAM 750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive Intel HD 3000 Graphics 13.3" LED-Backlit Glossy Display 1280 x 800 Native Resolution Slot-Loading SuperDrive 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR FaceTime HD Camera, Built-in Microphone Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (64-bit) 3. MD101LL/A $1138.95 Product Highlights Intel Core i5 Dual-Core 2.5 GHz CPU Internal 4GB DDR3 RAM Features 500GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive Intel HD 4000 Graphics LED-Backlit 13.3" (33.8 cm) Display Native 1280 x 800 Resolution Wireless 802.11n WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0 Dual USB 3.0 Ports & Thunderbolt Port May Ship with OS X Lion or Mountain Lion It seems like option number two is the best bang for the buck, but I'm not quite sure if the ivy bridge processor is that big of an upgrade to make up the difference in processor speed. Also, can I replace the RAM easily like on my old MB or is it more complicated on the Pro? I am planning on buying AppleCare since it is only $95 through BH. Thanks in advance!
