As far as if it's worth it, that's up to you. If you feel comfortable putting out $2671 for the MBP 15, then by all means, go ahead. You won't be disappointed. The other option is you can look on Apples website for a refurb.

Here's a few you should seriously consider:
Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 - Apple Store (U.S.)
and
Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 - Apple Store (U.S.)

And if you were really thinking about shelling out $2600 for the MBP 15, here is a refurb that would smoke it:
Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 - Apple Store (U.S.)


Now I'm not sure about Apple shipping to Croatia as far as taxes are concerned and whatnot, but check out those 3 above.

Yes, the C2D processor architecture is old, but many users will still find it usable. If you are worried about it not being able to handle all your tasks then definitely get the i5, but just be ready to spend more money.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Ok, I saw prices at appstore, but even if they are shipping to Cro, the price would be bigger than these in Cro, so that doesn't make any option...
Also, we also have all of those models here, but they are very very expensive so they are not a option at all...

for now I don't have questions, but thanks for helping me... I will definitely reconsider till weekend which one should I buy and get it on Saturday. Also, this thread will stay open for my first impressions and if I have any questions, I'll be free to ask you via PM.
Thank you once again!!!

PS. @pinchy: I have decidet not to go for Air because for that money I think that getting MBP 13" is much better option... that is just my opinion...
