    Hey I have a question:

    I will be getting either the 21.5-inch: 2.9GHz or 27-inch: 2.9GHz
    The 27inch would only cost about 250 more because of discounts.
    My question is how much better is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M than the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M? Will the extra pixels on the 27inch mean the 21inch will perform better? And which would you go for?

    Thanks for your help in advance!


    I'd really like an answer from people who know about graphics.
    I need to make a decision very soon.


    Please guys.

    If graphic is all you think about then no. Its not better.

    Well the 660 is better than the 650 but only at the same resolution.

    Thing is the 27 has a higher resolution than the 21 inch. So my advice is if you go 27 only think about getting the higher end graphics 675, 680.

    The 21.5" with the 650M will most likely perform better because of the lower native resolution.

    However, you can always lower the resolution on the 27" but it will look like s h i t.

    What are you planning on using it for?

    Gaming? Video editing? Photo editing? Audio editing?

    All of the above. Thanks for the answers.
    I've decided to go for the 27inch; because of the user upgradeable ram.
