hi everyone

i'm looking to buy a 17" macbook pro for all my processing work. will be looking to spec a machine with the 2.3ghz processor, 8gb ram, 500gb 7200rpm hd and the hi-res glossy display. you think this combo would easily handle processing pics etc?

Yes, it will do fine. Is this the quad core model? If so, it may not even break a sweat editing 7D files :) Instead of the 17" model, you may want to look at the 15" model and then get an external monitor for better color representation.

That's more or less the spec I am going for when I replace my current 13" MacBook sometime late Fall. OS X rocks! :D

it will be the quad core model. i was thinking of going for the 15" model but when i matched the same model spec for spec against the 17" there isnt much in it regarding price. hence just opting for the 17" for the time being and then getting a larger display at a later date.
