I only get a new computer every so often. My last laptop was after about 4 years and it was just a budget POS inspiron. That needs a new motherboard now after one year So I'm going for something more reliable but I want it to be future proof. I'd use the laptop mostly for work. That would involve some image editing but nothing to fancy. Do you think I should spring for the i5 or will I be happy with a C2D in the 13? Before the update I wanted the 13 but thought they'd get the i3 or i5. Compact is good for travelling to conferences. I don't want any regrets that's all Mac virgin apart from iPhone which is sold now here.
