    Hi everyone.

    I have been following this forum the past few months looking forward to the MBP update.

    I am about to enter the Apple world! :) I was thinking about buying a 13'' MBP low end but after seeing the update I was a bit turned off with the lack of a higher resolution and with the graphics card. On the other hand I was really pleased with such tests.

    So now I am considering either getting a 13'' 2011 Low End with a nice processor or 15'' 2010 Low End whose price is sure to come down with the updated line (I have already seen a price drop to 1499) with a better graphics card and more screen estate.

    Which one is better for me?
    I will use it to program, moderate gaming (mainly League of Legends and similar games) and regular use (web/office).

    Thank you for any hints you can give me!

    The i5 can handle the things besides games you listed fine.
    I'm not familiar with those games you listed though so I can't say but the general consensus is that the Intel graphics are underwhelming for recent games like starcraft 2 and CoD.
