Hello! Long time reader - first time poster. I'm a video editor. I actually think that the previous generation MBP is a better suited computer for me than the new one (matte screen, proven graphics card set-up, more firewire connectivity etc.). I would love to debate that last statement...but I'm about to pull the trigger on buying a previous generation MBP. This is a secondary machine for me (I will still edit, do almost all my rendering on my Mac Pro) so saving money is important here. Performance is also important (I want a 7200 rpm hard drive, 512 kb on the graphics card and 4 GB RAM in the end). With that in mind I think I've narrowed it down to these choices - I'd like your thoughts and any other suggestions: $1799 - but I have to then upgrade my HD and RAM after purchase $2099 - only upgrade RAM after purchase Is it worth spending the extra $300 to get a slightly smaller but faster hard drive, which also would come with an apple warranty? Thanks!
