After much deliberation I finally broke down and bought a new 15″ MacBook Pro. Thank God for the USAA employee discount because it saved me a lot of money. I decided to not get the SSD at this time going for more hard drive space over the speed. The 128GB SSD just doesn’t seem like much when you have 80GB of music and 10GB+ of videos and pictures….
- Processor – 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
- Memory – 4GB DDR3 (who actually pays for the upgrade?)
- Hard Drive – 500GB SATA 7200
- Upgraded display and a few other small upgrades
My existing MacBook, that’s MacBook not MacBook Pro, is a good 4 years old and has served it’s purpose of watching movies and surfing the web well. I’m looking forward to actually being able to code and run services without waiting 10+minutes for anything to load.
