1) 9600GT? This will be for grad school, so I will be using this MOSTLY for writing, web, keynote, and email. I LOVE watching movies and hope to SLOWLY wade into the video editing pool....but I am NOT a gamer and if I do get some games, I probably wouldn't know the difference in rendering. It is more the movie watching and editing I am concerned with 2) Will I see a difference in the aforementioned activities with a jump to 7200rpm hard drives from the 5400? Thanks! p.s. Was going to go with the MBA but when then come come out with 256GB SSD and 4mgs of ram this winter I will hate myself. This computer has to LAST 3 years, minimum!
