Hello folks! I'm brand new here so if I am unknowning doing something wrong you have my sincerest apologies in advance! Anyway, I have sufficent funds to buy a MacBook Pro up to $3,000 USD and am hugely tempted by the current Core 2 Duo models. It would be my first Mac purchase. However, I'm into my Windows games and the MacBook Pro would become my main computer for 4+ years and am aware the Radeon 9600 won't cut it for 'off the shelf' mainstream games. My question for you Mac followers out there is this - What is the likelyhood of Apple putting in an option to have a "gaming" video card in their MacBook Pro and is there any speculation of Apple switching to NVIDIA (highly preferred.) I'm just thinking of a laptop version of the 7600 chipset or a yet-to-be-announced 8xxx model. I guess no matter what I'll wait 'till February, to give January's product annoucements a chance to turn up. Would it be at all likely for Apple to release new MacBook Pro's in January? I doubted it considering they just gave them new processors- but it was a small upgrade... Thanks, Emex EDIT: I ment X1600, sorry.
