I just sold my 2010 15" i5 for a very good price and bought the 2011 13" i5. I dont do much gaming but always went for a laptop with a good GPU so I was a bit hesitant with the HD 3000 after reading some of the posts on this forum. Well, I for one am a very happy camper. I fired up Half Life 2 and was very impressed with the native resolution results! I realize this is an old game and I realize that its not a fair comparison with my 2010 15" which had a HR screen but boy I wasnt expecting it to be this good!!! Anyways, FWIW, I just wanted to share my personal experience on this ongoing debate.
