I have to get a MacBook Pro 15" for my work. I'm a photographer, so I will be editing a lot of images with Photoshop, Aperture, plug-ins, etc. + I will connect a large external monitor to it.

I will also have to edit some videos in FCP but not much, and recording some audio using Logic.

My two choices are: MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz (i5) or 2.66 GHz (i7). From what I understood the 2.53 GHz (i5) is not really worthed, since there is almost no difference with the 2.4 GHz.

I was wondering if in your opinion the better graphics of the 2.66 GHz could make a big difference to me.
I don't play any games on my mac.

Thank you so much for your advises

Have a good day
