I currently own Macbook Pro (Santarosa Chipset) with the Nvidia 8600GT video chipset with 128 megs of Vram. Main reason why I chose the macbook pro is because of its ability to push decent gaming performance and its all aluminum casing with just looks awesome. However the new macbooks offer just that and the size is just perfect. One of the drawbacks of my current macbook pro is that is a 15 inch notebook which can become a hassle if one has to carry it everywhere. The new macbooks offer the new nvidia chipset , they have aluminum casing, and they offer the smaller 13 inch display. Keep in mind that the selling point for me is the size, aluminum casing, and performance similar to my current macbook pro. Question #1. How does the graphical performance of the new 9400m Compare with that of the older gen Macbook Pros ( Santarosa Geforce 8600GT). Question #2. If someone currently has the system, please run some benchmarks on it ( specifically graphical ones) and ill run the same on my current macbook pro and ill just compare numbers . Thanks for all your help.
