I have a really hard time deciding. My school still has previous gen model available and the deal is really nice at this time (free Applecare and free iPod after MIR...) MB986LL/A Alum MacBook Pro 2.8GHz/4GB 500GB HD $1709 MC371LL/A 2.4GHz MacBook Pro 320GB $1699 (But no free Applecare) BACKGROUND: I am replacing a 2008 MBP and really don't need a power house as I do anything processing intensive on my current version MacPro. I just wanted other people's opinion on if the latest graphics bump and i5 would be something that I would miss for the small price difference as most people here have kept up with that kind of information. Logging out to change the graphics card would be a bit annoying, but I am not sure how people live with it at this time if you happen to own the previous gen MBP. Thanks in advance.
