Hey there! I've been considering buying a Macbook Pro lately. This'd be the first time for me getting into this field of laptops, therefore I don't know much about MAC OS etc. I plan to use the laptop mainly for school work (i.e. Word, Internet, etc.), as well as some Music Making (Reason Propellerhead), but here and there I'd definitely like to do some gaming as well (been anticipating GTA 4 for PC, as well as Crysis 2 etc.). With the release of the latest MBP, I've been disappointed by the look of the new keyboard. To be honest, I prefer the outlook of the all silver version to the latest one, for the most part thanks to the keyboard. Somehow, I just find the silver keyboard much smoother and better looking. In any case, I have been deciding among 3 MBPs: 1st OPTION: 2.5 Ghz (Bus: 800 Mhz) Cache standard, secondary 6 MB 2 GB RAM DDR2 Geforce 8600 512MB GDDR3 SDRAM 2nd OPTION: 2.4 Ghz (Bus: 800 Mhz) Cache standard, secondary 3 MB 2 GB RAM DDR2 Geforce 8600 256 MB GDDR3 SDRAM 3rd OPTION - the latest MBP 2.4 Ghz (Bus: 1066 Mhz) Cache standard, secondary 3 MB 2 GB RAM DDR3 Geforce 9400, 9600 - up to 512MB (shared) Now, I'd like to pose a couple of questions to you guys. 1) Is it true that NONE but the latest MBP is compatible with DDR3 RAM? 2) Would I be losing a lot by getting the MBP with 2 GB DDR2 RAM as opposed to 2 GB DDR3? 3) What role does this L2 cache play on the laptop? Is it better to have 6 MB or 3 MB of it? 4) Is there a noticeable difference in performance between 2.5 Ghz (Bus: 800 Mhz) and 2.4 Ghz (Bus: 1066 Mhz)? 5) How would a Geforce 8600 512 MB be compared to 9600 256 MB in terms of gaming? 9600 not much better? 6) On Macmall.com I found certain early 2008 version MBPs with glossy screens. Does anyone know if they are legitimate? Were those some kind of special editions, or how come they come with a glossy screen? (I thought this was the latest MBP trait only.) 7) If I were to have the Boot Camp thingy with Vista, is it possible to just have Vista running somewhere in the background, and whenever you need to use a program that is not compatible with MAC OS you'd just pull it out of Vista and run it on MAC OS without having to completely switch to Vista? This would be all for now. I appreciate your help in advance!!!!
