    So I have decided that I will finally get a mac mainly because I could really make use of the great battery life, want to experience OS X, and generally think they are awesome. :D

    At first I was planning on going with the 15" because my current laptop is a 13" and I find its screen space rather limiting. However I recently thought that OS X may make better use of screen real estate, like with expose for example. Also I can't imagine that a 1 pound difference and a slightly wider/longer size would make the 15" any less portable.

    I was also considering one of the models with the 9600M GT as I do a bit of gaming, but mainly because I figured that with the release of Snow Leopard and OpenCL it could theoretically speed up the whole system.

    Anyone have any thoughts/recommendations? Thanks.

    Yea, I read all that, it didn't really have what I wanted. In particular, is the 9600M worth getting because OpenCL has the potential to make the whole system faster with the better chip?
