Hello, I am going to college this fall and am going to be getting my first mac, I'm excited! I am trying to decide between the MBP core i7 and the 2.53 gHz core i5. I am also wondering about the high resolution screen, and whether the extra 256 Mb of video memory on the i7's card would benefit me. I will be using this computer for internet, youtube watching, movie watching, some recording and creating music with garage band, and games. I was at the Apple store today, and was advised that the 2.53 gHz core i5 would probably be enough for me, but I would like to get a second and possibly more thorough answer. As for gaming, the games I will most likely play on it would be similar to WoW in terms of GPU demand, but I am also considering getting Crysis to play, because it looks awesome. Also, I loved the new 1680x1050 anti glare display. I am wondering if it will perform well for gaming if I decide to go with the core i5. I have read that the core i5 is a better deal. It runs cooler and doesn't drain as much battery and is even better than the i7 in some aspects, could anyone detail this any more as to how the performance would differ in terms of my use? So, any thoughts on this would be appreciated Thanks!
