Hi, I am planning to get a new laptop currently I have a Dell 700m and the Dell M1210. Ill be honest I am not happy with the Dell M1210 because of its battery issue. It costs 153.99$ on Dell website and lasts like a year that's it. The Dell 700m is a donkey its slow so I hardly ever use that. I already have a powerful Intel i7 930 at home which I made myself and I use for gaming and other heavy stuff. The laptop will be used for school work(programming since I am doing Bachelors in I.T), music, movies and just general web surfing and stuff. I am very interested in the Apple Mac Book Pro 13" because of its ultra slick design and small 13" screen I like small portable laptops plus I also want to know the Mac OSX. My question is from experts here I have a budget of 1500.00$ to 1600.00$ is the Apple Mac Book Pro 13" a good choice for the purpose I am using the laptop for and also one key question they are offering Intel Core 2 Duo with the 13" Mac Book Pro not the i3 or i5. Should I wait until Jan, Feb 2011 maybe then they will offer the i3 and i5 for 13" Mac Book Pro or just get the current old CPU from Apple the Core 2 Duo. Kindly help with this matter I would really appreciate your input.
