    Hi all. I am looking for some advice.

    I had a 17" MBP before and loved it. Until it took a fall down the stairs and the results weren't pretty. At 4yrs old though it is time to get something new especially with my dinosaur Dell desktop dying as I type. I've been using an HP HDX16 for about a year but miss my Apple too much!

    I don't do a lot with it really. Some photo editing with Photoshop, web browsing, word/excel/etc, and every now and then a game like a flight sim.

    With my use would I really notice a difference between the i5 and i7? Just don't know if it is worth the price difference. I think I'd go with a 15" this time around, not certain yet though.

    Oh decisions, descisions...please give me some guidance!

    Hell I'm a graphic designer/heavy photoshop user/illustrator and I don't think I'd notice a C2D verus i7.

    The biggest difference is getting an SSD. I'd pool your money into that.
