Hi guys, I'm willing to purchase a low end iMac with the 9400M Graphics card or maybe a lower end MacBook / Pro so i was wondering what's the difference from my previous High end 20" Late 2006 White iMac (MA589LL) which had the ATI Radeon X1600 with 128MB GDDR3 SDRAM will i feel a huge difference? Is the 9400M Better or worse? How much better?

Greetings!

Feel a huge difference doing what exactly?

If you go with the 21" iMac -- its 900 mhz processor will make everything feel different right away...

NBReview - The 9400M scores a 3100, and the X1600 scores a 3700.
The x1600 is actually slightly faster but you'll get better CPU performance out of the new machine.
