Hey everybody!

First i wanna say is, im new to the forums and new to the mac world. im looking to buy a macbook pro for the first time but dont know which one to pick. im stuck between:

1) 13-inch: 2.66GHz
Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB Memory

2)15-inch: 2.4GHz

heres the down low:

1. both machines are great.

2. the 2nd option is better, but more expensive.

both will do what you want to do easily, but the 15 inch will do it a little bit faster.
if you wanna do HD editing maybe boost the RAM to 8gb, but do this yourself, dont pay apple silly money for it.
sorted.
