    Default Laptop?

    Ok I posted this on wirlpool

    Hey guys, I was thinking of buying a second hand 17" macbook pro unibody 2.93ghz

    Basically I can pick one up for about $1000, then I get a $794 education rebate.

    I mainly do video editing, game development, 3d model design, webpage creation and basic gaming.

    My dad has had his desktop pc with core 2 duo 2.63ghz 4gb ram and an ati radion 4600 1gb dedicated (don't quote me on that one)

    Ive always been able to play/do anything I wanted on it, and it runs them all smoothly with no drop outs.

    Do you think this is alright for me?
    This will be my first mac ive brought (Im upgrading from my white macbook unibody the school gave me)

    I always feel funny about buying old tech

    Edit: I am also a Dj and will be using this with two cdj 850's hooked up to traktor via MIDI
    So what do you guys think?

    Should be fine I think.

    How much RAM do you have? For that amount of stuff I would up the RAM to the max for best results, at least 8GB.
