    Hi im looking to buy a mbp. I went to the refurbished online store and I noticed they are both selling for the same price. One is the latest generation and has all the nice features like 7 hour battery life and better screen, but the other has the dedicated gpu. I will be playing a fair amount of games, and I am wondering if the 9400m will be enough. Thanks for the help.

    The 9400M is no slouch but I think if you plan on playing games, the Late-2008 MacBook Pro w/ the 256MB 9600M GT would be the better choice? Unless you think you would really benefit from the 7-hour battery life and the ability of expanding to 8GB of RAM which the low-end MacBook Pro cannot do.

    I'm happy with my MacBook Pro and handles anything I throw at it. It just comes down to battery and expandable memory for you.

    last year high end, no brainer. 9400 will disappoint with games, simple as that
