Gaming on a Hi-Res Macbook 17inch screen
I am stuck between the normal and hi-res screen for the MBP.
Cost isnt a problem, after the price of the Macbook 17inch (i get edu discount), I would pay more to ensure I got the exact one I wanted.
But what did occur to me is that will the graphic card power that res enough? I mean, 256mb?
How much of a drop in performance am I likely to expect?

Bear in mind that the 17" version, unlike the 15", does not use the LED display and will fade over time. Personally, I chose the latter because it has a much brighter screen (more conducive to outdoor use) with better longevity, and is about a pound and a half lighter weight.
The 17", however, has a noticeably longer battery life and actually has better graphics performance than the 15" (the GPU and VRAM both clock notably faster). I really wouldn't worry about the larger resolution taxing the video card, especially since you can lower it if need be.
EDIT: just realized that's actually the same link jdechko posted
