    Ok I'm wondering which mac notebook to get
    I like how the old macbook looks, but i want the multitouch the macbook pros have. I'm gonna use it to play games like team fortress and counter strike.
    would there be a significant difference of speed and performance between the two?

    If you even want to think about playing games, you'll need a pro. The 13" models have subpar graphics.

    A nice refurbed Pro is only just below $1500.

    i was looking to the 1000 to 1200 range
    but i think i can push it a little
    thanks for the input
    do you know how many fps the nvidia 9400m would have in teamfortress or a game similar?

    Well you'll probably want the 9600m GT for gaming as it offers about 2x the gaming performance of the 9400m. That being said, if you go for a 13" instead of the 15", you'll be running at a lower native resolution which would probably decrease your graphical demands.

    All things considered, 9400m will play the games you mention, but not will all settings maxed out at native res.
