    If you're a gamer, have you taken a good look at the 15" MacBook Pro? It will be much better suited to gaming with it's discrete graphics card over the 13" MacBook Pro's integrated graphics card. As for the display, any TN panel display will work well for gaming because they have a very fast response time.

    I would go with the Logitech Performance Mouse MX over Apple's Magic Mouse, but that's just my personal preference. Neooffice J would probably be a good application for you to get if you're not purchasing iWorks quite yet.

    1. i5 should be fine for you. Both have the same GPU and that is more important in games.

    3. DDR3 1333MHz PC3-10600 SODIMM

    4. Magic Mouse is horrible for gaming.

    For gaming you may be disappointed in thegpu that's in the 13" gpu. I'd take a closer look at the 15 inch model

    Id like to thank you for your responses, the Amd's are very tempting but that costs around 2260dollars for the cheapest model, maybe ill convince my parrents, becouse i will need this for all 4 years in high school and the old nvidia graphics suck compared to the amd's
