    I bought a previous generation 2.4GHz MBP a few days ago. As it has not shipped yet i have the option to change it for a new generation 2.53 MBP. The thing that concerns me is the downgrade of the graphics card on the new GEN model. I cannot get the 2.66GHz model as Apple wont let me add any extra money to the finance option.

    Which one should i go for?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Stay with the old one if you really need the dedicated graphics card

    I just got the 2.4 GHZ MBP about a week and a half ago. They are now selling these off at $1599. If you just ordered yours, make sure you get the credit. Saved me $400.

    If I didn't crave the additional battery life, I'd get the old generation for sure. I personally don't believe that the 15" screens are going to be any better, but we will wait for people to feverishly benchmark and post impressions before buying.

    Keep the old one or get the 2.66GHz model for the same price as the old 2.4GHz model.
