Actually the x1600 is pretty good, and a great choice a year ago. As the title says, I really want to buy a MBP but I can't justify to myself buying a computer with a graphics card that was introduced over a year ago. I am thinking this has to be upgraded at the next revision coming up. The x1600 would really be fine for now, but I want my computer to be somewhat future proof for a little while. I've read reports that some think that newer cards draw more power or are too hot....but I really have a hard time believing that it won't be upgraded.
