    Hi, I was in the market for a new MBP. Ive owned the 13 inch models for a while but wanted to really try out the 15 inch ones for some time. I am debating between the current base level model of the new 13 inch MBP or the previous gen 15 inch MBP with the old graphics card. Keep in mind this is a 2.66 ghz model with the dual GPUs. The older generation MBP will cost me $200 more than the current 13 inch base level model. Both are brand new sealed in box. What model do you think would be better or a better value.
    I do some RAW photo editing, some video editing but really just use it for normal purposes most of the time. THanks in advance!

    The 9600GT is still faster than the 320M and is a discrete card. Plus you get a bigger, superior quality screen and bigger HDD

    Go for the 15", it's a great machine, and the discrete graphics card is a plus.
