I've been DYING for the update, and I'm really relieved it's here. I'm also happy that the 'flagship' $1500 model is now a 24" with a 640gb hard drive and a standard of 4gb of RAM with a possibility of 8, so this is the model that I'm mainly looking at. What I don't understand is all of this graphics card lingo. I thought the NVIDIA cards were supposed to be better. And what is the difference between a shared or designated graphics card? I am a student, so I mainly use my computer (a Dell Diminsion 3000 with an Intel Pentium 4 Processor 2.80 GHz, and 512 MB of ram. Don't ask me what any of that means, but I know it makes me want to run my head through a wall. It takes forever just to open two tabs on the internet.) for internet, word processing, projects (WMM quality videos and light sound editing), as well as movies/youtube and music. The only game I play (well, I can't anymore b/c my computer is too slow and has a virus so I can't download the patch) is Maplestory, and that's only because I get really bored sometimes, so I'm not much of a gamer at all.
