    I’m thinking getting a Macbook pro 15” but not sure which one suits me.

    I don’t play computer games but will use it to what movies. Also, Photo Shop for a bit of photo touch up and Live Interiors 3D application for simple floor plan and 3D drawing.

    Do I need the Macbook Pro 2.66 with the extra graphic card or just the basic 2.53 is good enough for what I do?

    I think 2.53GHz model is enough for you.. However, I don't know does Live Interiors 3D support or need dedicated GPU

    Keep in mind that the 15" 2.66 256MB GDDR3 graphics card only works when it is plugged in from what I understand. Please feel free to correct me. I am getting the 15" 2.66 in a few weeks, I plan on using it for photos and possibly video editing and some 3d programs. I would also go for the matte screen, just my 2 cents. Good Luck !!!! :apple: = :)
