I have a powerbook now that I am not even able to watch tv over the internet on now. When I bought it just over 3yrs ago I upgraded the graphics choice. So my questions are: Is the graphics card in the brand new MBP much better than my PB g4 was? Too clarify will the latest MBP be able to last longer than the PB? Is the new graphics card cutting edge compared to others now? OR Should I buy the least expensive mac pro and maybe have to in three years replace the graphics card in order to do something as seemingly simple as watch internet tv? So I guess what I am asking should I just count on buying a new laptop every 2 1/2 years VS spend more now on the single chip MP and what card should I get in the MP? I tried to find a non Apple/less expensive place to by GPU for the MP but did not find any. Is there a place like Kingston or Crucial for memory but instead for a good price and quality GPU? I have a unused 20 inch dell CRT monitor from about 4-5 yrs ago I could use with the MP. I mostly do word processing, research, watch videos, DVDs, e-mail, pictures, Iphone, first person shooters, internet radio(Bob Brinker, TWIT, Mac shows, news, Investing, medical...) Also according to my research the Mac Pro is due for a new model coming out any day now. So taking longevity of product life VS cost(including upgrade of MP) which is less expensive? I tried to be descriptive. I am sure I left information out, but I am willing to give more info. if asked. Thank you for you time and wisdom! I forgot to also ask when watching tv and movies what will allow me to see the stuff in scenes with poor lighting? I notice a lot of tvs and my laptop you do not see alot, but on a old cheap CRT tv you see so much more. If I buy a new screen should I buy a TV or a monitor and what model or models should I think about? Again thank you!
