I will be attending graduate school for design and will use the computer for a variety of projects ranging from print, web, video and photography. Also my idea is with getting the MBP and a monitor is so I replace having two computers. My only concern is the battery life and longevity of the MBP.

Opinions greatly appreciated or experience with using both systems. Thanks!
