I have the 2.3 13 inch and do watch HD video and edit in Photoshop, and much more, without any difficulty. If you want to upgrade something, the hands-down choice is to up memory from 4 to 8 gig.

Use Ctrl-F2 to get to the command bar, then down arrow to get to the system preferences app. You may have to also hold the FN key for F2 to work.

It's too bad they max out at 4gig RAM and 256gig HD. I suppose they want a clear distinction between the MBP and Air line of products. Limiting RAM especially makes it impractical to run another OS...
