Hello

I will soon be buying a MacBook Pro 13.3inch, £999 standard spec.

Is this a good setup

>MS Office 2011
>Adobe Photoshop Elements
>VGA Dongle
>Apple Remote
>2TB Raid Drive
>Laptop Skin
>Microsoft Windows 7 or 8 on boot camp

Thanks in advance

Sounds fine, you can get iWork instead (it's compatible with office documents, but you can get MS Office as well, I assume that's for the Windows you're planning to install via Boot Camp, or you can get Office for Mac as well). Getting a laptop skin is a good idea, protecting it from stuff. I believe you'll be hooking it up to a larger display (for movies/multimedia?), since you're also getting the VGA dongle and a remote? The setup sounds good, overall :)

Are you a student? You can avail Apple's special discounts for students (available on Hardware as well as on Software)

No idea regarding a cheap version of Windows 7 (I'd suggest you to wait till Windows 8 comes it).
