    If you're gaming then go for the high end MBP 15". As you'll need the 1GB graphics card for that.

    The 13' Macbook Pro uses Intel HD 3000 graphics, which IMO are worse than the nVidia 9400 graphics. Go with the Quad 2.0 i7 with dedicated AMD graphics. You can check out this link for comparison: 2011 Macbook Pro Comparisons

    In no way is the HD3000 worse than the NV9400. You might be able to make the claim that the HD3000 drivers might suck, but we've seen none of that thus far.

    No point in purchasing the high end 13" as it's barely any better than the base and the price hike ain't worth it. Just get a 15".
