    Hey everyone, i'm getting that annoyed with my Rev A MBA as a primary computer (mistake right...) so i'm going to attempt to renew my faith in Apple Macintosh computers by purchasing a MacBook Pro, just one question: should i purchase the base 15" model (£1500) or get the base 13" model with 8GB RAM and a 500GB HDD for £60 less (i couldn't be bothered to calculate Educational Discount). I would love to be able to run Windows 7 via Parallels or FusionWare and play the odd game such as Fable/Halo/COD4 so would i benefit more from the dedicated graphics than the RAM/HDD space, this does sound like a stupid question even as i am asking it... of course games run better on dedicated, but these relatively old games, would they be capable on 320M (not bothered about graphical detail, happy with minimal settings)? Any other advice about either of these notebooks would be appreciated, and just as a side note i'm not fussed about Glossy/Higher Res as i will more than likely be purchasing a 27" ACD early next year, regards, skate71290

    Big Sky country
    agree, plus bigger screen for pictures/media, still OK to carry around.
