    Hello, i live in Mendoza, Argentina and i wanted to get a mac. We dont have apple stores here, but there are several mac authorized resellers. I was going to get either a white Macbook 2.0ghz with superdrive or a 17' iMac. I have 2 doubts, i like laptops, but i dont like intel graphics, and i dont have enough money to get a macbook pro, thats why i considered an iMac. How bad are intel graphics ?, i may do some photo edition and some basic video edition, will the macbook be enough ?.
    And my second question is what do i have to take into account at the moment of buying ?, 'coz i've heard macbooks come with different cores, and the performance varies with the core, how do i know i'm getting a new one instead of an old one with an older procesor ?
    Thank You very much

    For photo and video editing I hear the Intel graphics are perfectly capable. If you want to play games though, it's not capable enough and you'd need a dedicated graphics card like found in the iMac.
