Hi I'm a design student and I use the adobe creative suite for school work(illustrator, photoshop, Dreamweaver, indesign). i currently have a toshiba laptop that cant handle the projects I work on, and freezes and is very slow. I decided that Im going to buy a new mac laptop but stuck on which model to buy. I need a laptop that is really portable and am able to put in my bag, so Im looking at the 13" models. I'm deciding between 3 different models: 1) macbook with upgrade to 4 GB of Ramm 2) Macbook Pro 13" 2.26GHz, and upgrade to 4 GB and 250 Ramm or 3) Macbook Pro 13" 2.53GHz. I was looking for a budget friendly external monitor that I can use at home, since the 13" screen is so small... any suggestions? does the high proccesor speeds make a noticeable difference in running the design programs? Also I went into future shop, any they told me their warranty is better than apple care because if you bring in your laptop 3 times to get fixed they would replace your laptop with a new one... does any one how experience with this? Thanks in advance!
