There is not much you can upgrade that will actually affect performance (just ram and hard drive I think). I'd keep the mac for your design school unless performance is really crucial. If so then you should just take the mac for basic schooling and portability and have a desktop with it for real work. If neither of those fits and you need a workstation laptop, you'll need a new one.
