What MacBook would you choose if it was to be used for School, PhotoShop, Animating and some "low end" gaming. The highest I'm willing to go is MacBook Pro with 2.66 GHz processor 4 Gigs of ram and 2 graphics cards.

Also what MacBook do you have and what do you use it for?

It depends on what screensize you want also, if you settle for a 13" screen, you'll be fine with the alu MacBook.

If you want the 15" screen you'll have to go with the MBP 2,53 GHz, or the 2,66 GHz...which would due to the mentioned dual GPU's be an excellent choice.

I you can afford it, go for it!!

My MBP is highly overrated for what I do with it, I got it mostly for the sheer power of the thing and I could not afford the 17", otherwise...
I browse the I-net, read emails, play games, and record music, watch, convert movies, nowadays.

Well, 13" would be fine, but I kinda think I'd like the extra GPU

I can assure you, the thing is great, and does just what it's supposed to do.

Hmm, would it be wise to buy it now? Or will they update it soon? Cus right now I'm thinking that 15" MacBook Pro is looking pretty tempting

Thanks. How long do you think this Configure - Apple Store (Danmark) is going to be up to date? I'm kinda expecting 5-ish years. Is that to much to expect?
