So work is buying me a new macbook pro to go along with my new job with them. I am curious if the 7200 rpm makes much of a battery difference. If it does is the performance gain worth the drop in time? I know this is a bad time to buy a laptop but I might be able to hold them off a bit. I can't wait until xmas for the new versions though. Thanks everyone. ps. They are also getting me a 3g iphone hah. Apparently I am their new main mac guy.
