    You could always wait until the new models become refurbs usually 2-3 months after they go on sale, unless your desperate for a MBP right now

    It really depends on the games you are playing. The ram is basically used for textures so it depends on the game.

    The easy answer is 512MB is better than 256MB.

    The practical answer is you probably won't see much difference.

    Depends on the system requirements your games have.

    Where is this school that "gaming" is the main requirement for a MBP and how do I get in so I can game all day as well? :D
