What MacBook Pro 15" Configuration Should I get?
June 27, 2010 3:15pm CST
As the title says, I am having some "technical issues" while trying to decide which configuration I should get for my MacBook Pro 15". I would quite gladly take the one with: [b]15-inch: 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Backlit Keyboard (Finnish) & User's Guide (Finnish) etc. Price:2.199,00 EUR But then "upgrade" it to: 2[b].66GHz Intel Core i7 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Glossy Widescreen Display SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Backlit Keyboard & User's Guide Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter etc.[/b] Price:2.363,01 EUR Wouldn't that sound great? If you want to see the configurations yourself, just go to http://store.apple.com/fi/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro or http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro

I have the basic 15 inch with i5 and 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, and it runs amazing...If you are a vet apple user i guess i would upgrade if i were you, but i am coming off an alienware area 51 and this notebook runs superb compared to it. It handles so much at once and never crashes, i have literally never had this computer crash in the 3 months i have had it. I would upgrade to the max if you have the money, but once you get it you will forget about all of that because this notebook is just amazing.

Yeah, I know that it is great... Now I have kind of looked around again, and I have decided to whether get a MBP 13" + iMac 27" or a MBP 15" + external monitor... It's really hard to choose, and the budget is also something very important... A MBP 13" is just so tempting because of it's portability, but the MBP 15" would be so much more efficient. Of course, one option would be to get a MBP 13 only, and nothing else, but that leaves me cold too... MBP 15" only isn't that good either, but with a external monitor, it does sound quite neat. And the iMac 27"... It's just superb. If you read this all, then you must understand where I have difficulties...
