    As i've stated in a previous thread i am jumping into the owrld of mac.

    I will be updating the RAM myself and know that all i need is the 20" model.

    Here is the question. With the Photo editing, Music,very light gaming i do (mostly civ and age of empire) and web surfing i do should i just get the base model or is it worth it for the extra $300 to get the next model up, It look to me like you get 2.4 gHz vs 2.0, 256mb Video Card vs 128, and 320 HDD vs 250.

    Any help is as always greatly appreciated.

    The big one here is how light your "light gaming" is.

    If you're serious about your framerates and such, the better GPU will suit you. If you're playing games that are less graphics hungry, the base model should be fine for your needs.
