Are there any MacNerds around?
As some of you might know, i'm studying Software Engineering, but until now the lectures i took were not about programming, mostly the basics and things like Math etc..
I've a laptop but it's big and hard to bring it with me. But the thing concerns me most is it's kinda old (processor etc) so now i've decided to buy a new one..
After some searching around, i think i will go for a MacBook Pro, even though i've never used a Mac until now, i don't think it will be hard to get used to it.. However, i can't decide about which one to buy..
Here is the list:
Now, the problem is i'm not really sure about which one i actually need.. Assuming i will use it for around 3 years, would Core 2 Duo do the job or shall i get an i5? And how much does the GHz difference matter?
- I'll only use it for my study, so the HDD and other things which would improve gaming etc. doesn't matter.
- I have a budget around 1800€ max to spend on a MacBook, but would like to spend less of course if you think a cheap one is enough for me.
Would like to hear your thoughts, especially if you have a programming experience..
