    I am looking to buy my first Mac. I am debating the 21.5 inch 508LL & the 21.5 inch 509LL. Is it worth the extra $300 for the better graphics processor, the .14 ghz processor difference and more storage? Your opinions will be helpful. Thanks.

    Depends what it is used for. In gaming, the better GPU will help but that is pretty much it.

    Thanks. I'll be doing some gaming but nothing too serious, and some video editing. Other than that, just standard use.

    Well, it's up to you then. If you want games to run better, then spend the extra 300$ but the low-end will run games fine too.

    If it's not urgent: wait a couple of weeks. New iMacs are coming...
