Hello everyone. First of all, let me say that I am in no way trying to offend anyone. I am seriously asking because I am very tempted to purchase this machine. I have read that if the RAM is increased to 8GB's, then the amount of video RAM is increased to 512. I guess I'm just scared because the machine does not have a dedicated GPU. I will admit that the machine I am using is an ancient old girl, but she has been with me through thick and thin. My current Mac is a G4 eMac with a 1.42GHz G4 and only 64MB of video RAM. I just don't want to buy something that I am gonna be disappointed with. How is the keyboard? Is it something that is comfortable to type on for long periods of time? I know that may sound like a very odd question, but I do a lot of writing. I had posted a thread on here about a month ago and I got a lot of really great responses. I have been looking at the 15" machines on Amazon and I really do like the reviews there. Someone mentioned that his 15" MBP keyboard had a wider spacing of the keys than he was used to and that he liked that a lot after he finally got used to it. I am so tempted to get the top of the line 15", but I don't want to do something stupid and buy a Ferrari if all I need is a Jeep Wrangler. I guess I'm just being silly, but I keep reading reviews on Amazon saying that the 2011 13" model is a step backwards compared to the previous model because the previous model came with the Nvidia GPU. I mostly use my computer to surf the web and to write. I also like to watch movies on youtube and Hulu. My current machine is no longer supported on Hulu and that really gets to me I have been a user of OS X since my first Mac, a 500MHz G3 iMac that also came with a OS X disc with 10.0.3 (I'm pretty sure that was the version of X that it came with). I don't want to have to buy a new computer every two or three years. I want something that I could theoretically use for 8 years if I wanted to and that is why I am wondering if I need a top of the line 15". I know that this probably sounds crazy to some of you and I suppose that it might be. If I do buy a 13" I am going to purchase it with the 750GB HD. I know that the SSD is better in so many ways, but I would rather have a huge traditional HD. I have a pretty good sized music library and I have a lot of podcasts. I keep all of my iTunes library on an external 1TB drive that I also use for Time Machine. Thank you for any replies. Sincerely, Larry Campbell Hickory, NC P.S. I do remember that if I get the 13" I do not need to upgrade the CPU. I remember that advice from the last time I asked a question about the 13" MBP.
