    Hi, I am debating between two computers I can get for the exact same amount.

    On one hand, I can buy:
    Macbook Pro 15 inch Unibody (SD) (11 months old)
    http://www.everymac.com/systems/app....8-aluminum-15-mid-2009-sd-unibody-specs.html
    With these parts upgraded:
    3.06ghz Core 2 Duo
    500gig 7200RPM


    On the other hand, I buy:
    Macbook Pro Unibody i5 2.4 (2 months old)
    http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...5-2.4-aluminum-15-mid-2010-unibody-specs.html

    I like playing games occasionally,and I am wondering about the difference between the older 9600GT 512 vs the new M330 GT and I want to get the best value possible for my money. Anyone can help with the decision ?

    The CPU is faster and the GT330M is performing much better than the 9600.

    New ones have faster processors and better video cards.
