    17-inch WS Hi-Res Glossy Display
    2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM (2x1GB)
    160GB Serial ATA Hard Disk @ 5400
    SuperDrive 8x
    BackLit Keyboard
    Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger)
    Video - I'm being told is 512vram card?

    How much do you think this model is still worth it?

    I am pretty sure there was no 512MB option on that model. And I would say you would be looking at $1500-$1600.

    since now I verified that the video card is 256 and not 512 - am I going to see a lot of difference between 512 and 256 video card?

    this is going to be my 1st mac.. have Dell XPS 1210

    Depends on what you intend using the MBP for, If its just general WP or photoshop bit of movie making, iPhoto and emails etc then 256 will be fine, Heaps in fact.
