    Depends what you do. I would get 2.93 because it has dedicated GPU and is only 300$ more

    Go for the 2.93, and upgrade to the ATI graphics card if you can. Worth the $. As for the processor, you won't really notice a difference unless you plan to do intensive encoding work, like in the case of iMovie or Final Cut.
