    Hi.

    Theres a place that sells the early high end 11 15" Mbp for 16195:- SEK, compared to the current low end one thats priced at 16495:- SEK.

    The benefit would be getting a 6750 with 1GB VRAM. Is this a decent deal?

    16495:- SEK is the swedish apple store standard price for a low end Mbp, compared to your 1799:- Dollars. :)

    If you are an average user, you wont notice a difference in Early and late 2011 models.

    The 0.2~0.3GHz increase doesn't affect user as much.
    And getting the low end late 2011 model causes you to get only 512MB VRAM.

    Go with early. It wasnt a whole new refresh and just a CPU bump.
    I compared my Early 2011 with my friends Late 2011 and we didnt see much difference.

    If I jump on this offer, is there anything Im missing out on if I choose a februari model instead of a october one?
    The hardware seems to be very similar on the early 2011 high-end 15" compared to the late 2011 low-end 15"... But am I missing any hidden stuff? Like max ram support or other kind of adaptabilities and what not. :) Appreciate all input on the matter.

    No. The tiny processor bump and video bump was it.

    Will this Early 2011 High-end 15" Mbp with 6750 1GB VRAM manage Diablo 3 on high settings and AA on? (I Would get 8GB RAM aswell)

    There is only 1 of these left and Im still contemplating wether Ill be satisfied or not. :)

    It'll have a better chance of managing it than the 512MB of the late 2011 if that's yer only other option.

    My other option is waiting for the new one, but who knows when it will come and I want to be able to play D3 with my wife.

    The current high-end is out of my reach, economically.
