I'm trying to decide between the base macbook pro model (2.16, 128vram, 1gb) and midrange (2.33, 256vram, 2gb). Frankly I dont think i'd be able to notice the difference in CPU speed too much, so i dont think thats really an issue. also, I'd probably add a gig of ram myself later on if I got the 1gb version. My biggest concern in the video ram. In an application like Google Earth, is there a big difference between using it with 128 vs. 256? what about basic video editing in iMovie? I'm not really a gamer, but since I'd eventually install XP i might play a few games from time to time. so my question is, based on my situation, would you go for the 256, knowing that its a few hundred $ more (and cash is fairly tight)? or will 128 be enough?
