So I have 1 more year of college and my ppc g4 1.5ghz is getting a little slow. I also had a IBM t41 for my accounting work but the video card went. So my parents decided to give me an early graduation present. I have decided on the 15 hi res which i feel is a good replacement for my 17. What I haven't figured out is what processor I want. The base would truly be fine but thought maybe the mid or high end would be better in the future and it's not impacting my finances? I will be running osx and 7 so I don't need a PC for some of my school work. I do a lot of video streaming in my dorm from my time cap but I can currently do that on my ppc. Besides that it is used for a little steam and CS3 studio suite and once and a while I compress videos usig handbrake but I have been doing that at work lately due to my ppc trying to kill itself with any file over 10mb. I'm truly not a heavy user but being a apple tech for the school I have a 8 core Mac pro with 16gbs of ram which is my main computer, so I do enjoy speed. I was think about the mid range 2.53 and getting the 128 ssd. Is that a good SSD? Apple doesn't give to much info on it? I'm currently using a 160gb 5400rpm in the ppc with my main storage being the time cap. What do you guys recommend?
