I am partially sorry for being another person to ask this question over-and-over again. I am excited as most of you are about the new notebooks tommorrow. I have always been lurking these pages, and being the huge procrastinator that I am, it took me almost 2 months to finally make an account and ask this question.. Which should I bother getting? My uses would be school, games, surfing the net, and watching movies. I have a desktop at my house ( an HP), so mainly most of my games would be stored there aswell as movies. From what I have been reading, the only difference between the MB and MBP (Internal Difference) is the video card. Unfortunately, with all my reading I still do not have a clear definition of what this video card is and what difference it makes. I heard that people who edit videos frequently, do a lot of multimedia, etc. require the Dedicated Video Card. My major is Civil Engineering, and I will have to use AutoCAD. I am not sure if AutoCAD can run on a mac, but if not, I will use Parallel's ( If that method will allow AutoCAD to work) or if not, I will just keep it on my desktop. But, I also wanted to know if the dedicated video card shows a major improvement while watching DVD's. If so, is it worth the extra $1,000? Thank You for your response! *Extra Note* Sorry for the huge Brick Wall... *Extra-Extra Note* I plan to upgrade the memory to the max. allowet. (4gb if its the max, or if the new notebooks can hold 8gb, then I will find some way to get 8gb). I would also prefer a 15' monitor, but I do not really like the 17'. I would like to spend no more than $2,000 in total including Apple Protection Plan and 7% Tax. But if it goes a little overboard, I might just be tempted to add in the extra cost.
