    i'm in the market for a new laptop... i'm a college student thats taking a lot of photo classes. i plan on working PS on it but it would mainly would be to write papers at school. would a mbp be worth the extra cost? i play on using the apple developer program to purchase the pro if i decide to go that route.. i imagine the difference is going to be around 700 or so.

    MBP - you answered your own question when you said you're going to be taking a lot of photo classes. You'll appreciate the dedicated video ram you get from the Pro. I have a MB and kick myself in the ass for not spending the extra money. My only resolve is that the laptop isn't my primary computer. I use an iMac for that. But seriously, the added features on the MBP are well worth it if you've got the $$ :cool:

    i love my macbook for it's size and price. only thing i wish it had was dedicated video, and the only reason for that is so that i can play Hd video on it.
    i couldn't justify the jump in price for wanting that alone

    i'm pretty sure that you will be happy either way.
    if you get a mbp, you will have a higher resale value etc

    the laptop is not going to be my primary computer, i have a decent pc at the house. i understand the mbp has a seperate video card, but how do i benefit from that? i really wish they made a mbp in a 12 or 13in.
