    Depending on the games you plan on playing, your going to want that 9600M GT graphics card... Dedicated graphics are a must for most graphic intense games...

    other than that, any of them would work for you just finnnee

    It is really a toss up between the two 2.66Ghz models.

    It really comes down to whether you want shorter battery life but be able to bring spares or longer battery life and have no spare without an expensive, heavy and large external battery pack.
