Hi there, my first post. Sorry for my english, i hope you will understand what I want to know I'm a PC user for 15 years now and I'm tired of Microsoft. At the moment I have mid-range M$ desktop machine and I want to replace it with a laptop. So I was thinking of buying a new Macbook Pro 13" - 2.53Ghz, 250GB, 2x2GB RAM (I don't have money for 15 or 17" and also both are too big). I also have a 20" NEC Multisync 20WGX2 Pro, whitch would I use as external display while staying at home. So my primary question (because I have never had an apple computer) is, if this MBP 13" would be powerfull enought for my everyday use (for my one and only primary computer), I want to use it for (at least 2-3 years): - programming in Java, C (with Netbeans) - watching movies (DVD, HD, DivX) and music (192kbps mp3-s mainly) - browsing web OFC, messenger - office (would be beter mac office from M$ or iWork???) and PDF - p2p - no video games (however is GPU powerfull enought for normal/smooth work on 1680x1050?? on my 20" display) - some basic work with pictures (no photoshop, like Picasa) - in future learning how to/ and making web pages (like Dreamweaver) - probably i will have to use VirtualBox (because it's free) for XP or Server 2008 (if some specific program won't work on OS X) - some/little video editing for my family videos (basics like Windows movie maker on Windows) Would MBP 13" 2,53ghz could handle this for the next, lets say 3 years? Lep pozdrav.
