    I've read all the reviews for the new MacBook but one thing that is not stated that well is if there is a major difference from the previous model to the current? Would I notice it or is it just minimal? I don't game that much and when I do it is on a console, the only game I would play would be sims 3 or hearts of iron 3. So is there a huge difference?

    The main change in the updated MacBook is specifications. The processor was bumped to a faster speed and the graphics card was improved.

    For you, it probably wouldn't be a huge difference.

    It happened about 3-4 weeks after the release of the new MBP. Trust me, I thought the exact same thing when I found out.

    This would be perfect for you, OP.

    I just got the new macbook as a replacement from my old one that had an unfortunate incident with a lorry (don't ask), I use it almost exclusively for web browsing / email / on the go work so noticed almost no difference.

    I am tempted to up the ram to 4gb then poke Portal on it though xD
