    MBP 2012 13" i5 with ssd or i7
    I've made my decision to go with the MBP 13" i7, but after a lot of reading a lot of people are recommending just to get the base model but with ssd, and I can also upgrade the RAM to 16gb. If I get the i7, I plan on upgrading to ssd but it would be at least 1 year before I plan on upgrading. My budget is 1500, so what do guys think, MBP 13" i5 +ssd+16 RAM or MBP 13" i7.

    Main uses would be school work, some picture and video editing with PS and FCP and some graphic design. Thanks.

    Thx for the input, unfortunately I live in a state with sales upgrading the i7 is out of the question...but I was more worried about the ssd than the RAM. The reviews I was reading said that the i7 is only 10-15% faster than the i5 was some of it is because the i7 config has 8gb RAM. But I know in 2 years the i7 would be underpowered much less the i5.... I'm probably sticking with the i7

    Can a friend do that? Buy it in their state but have it shipped directly to me...or do they get it then ship it to me ( which I have to pay for additional shipping fee)
