Well i was about to buy the base model i5 macbook pro with a hi res screen upgrade but then he said that 256mb of ram is kinda low for game development and i should get the i7 without the hi res option since i don't have the money to do so. this is not going to be my main machine for my game dev but it will be more powerful then my current rig which is pushing the 3 yr mark. i will be playing games on it too like starcraft 2 diablo 3 and aion. so should i get the base i5 with hi res screen or the i7 without the hi res screen but it will have 512mb of vram. the software that i will primarly use is blender i am at the apple store as of RIGHT NOW and plz need a answer typing this on my phone. i can't trust theses sharks of geniuses.
