    What's your budget?

    If you want to run games save your money and buy a PC laptop. Believe it or not you can still check email on Windows.

    If you are going to just play games via addictinggames.com either will do, if you end up going the MacBook Pro route, waiting might be a good idea.

    Then a Mac with a 9400m should suffice.


    Or not.

    You can take a look at the official website of those games you play and see for yourself what requirements they have.

    Also know that an update to the MacBook Pro line (and maybe even the MacBook) is expected in the next two months, so there is an opportunity of updated graphic chips.

    if they are light games then either will do...but that depends on what games you play

    i would suggest you to wait...it won't hurt you even if they don't update!

    So you are gonna buy it on July 1, 2010? Not any sooner?

    Then maybe you want to ask a little closer to that date?

    Then wait and see what new models Apple releases in 1st quarter 2010. It should be interesting.

    Next update is expected within two months. IF next MacBook Pro iteration came with a design flaw, they will probably fix it by July, therefore buy your laptop in July and be happy with it.
