We are looking to get our first Mac, and I am thinking about the lower end MBP 13". I would upgrade the RAM to 4gb and the HD probably to 500gb (neither thru Apple). I want it to be a place to keep all of our photos, videos, and iTunes media. Otherwise it would be used for web browsing, email, calendar, and Office docs (Word/Excel). It would not be used for games. So, do you think the 13" MBP with the slower processor would work for us? My biggest concern is video editing. We don't do much of it, but we have a Canon HD camcorder, and I want to make sure whatever I get can handle editing HD video without stuttering. Anybody use it for that? I like the 13" for the size and portability, and we'll probably get an iMac at some point. For now though, if the MBP can handle what we want to do, I think we'll start with it and go from there. What do you all think? I appreciate the advice, we are really looking forward to our first Mac, and want to make sure we get the right one. Thanks.
