Hey all, So I've narrowed down my choices to the following: Late 2009 - 27" - i5 2.66Ghz w/ ATI 4850 ($1512 NEW) Mid 2010 - 21.5" - i3 3.2Ghz w/ ATI 5670 ($1433 NEW/$1382 Apple Refurb) Mid 2010 - 21.5" - i3 3.06Ghz w ATI 4670 ($1146 NEW/$1110 Apple Refurb) So all of these prices are the best that I can find. The i5 refurb from Apple actually cost more than a new one. These prices include tax and shipping already. Anyway, I intend on using my Mac for media (Hulu-ing), internet, and word processing purposes. Oh yes, I also plan on running Boot Camp and Parallels. I intend on playing an occassional game or two. I'm a FPS person (CoD, MoH, etc). I've tried playing CoD MW2 on my Macbook unibody w/ the Nvidia 9400.. it wasn't bad at all. I'm guessing any dedicated graphics card will beat my Macbook.. So my questions are: 1) Which gives me the biggest bang for the buck? 2) Does the faster memory in the 2010 models make a big difference? 3) My impression is that I'm more future proof with the i5. But given my needs, maybe an i5 is overkill for me? 4) I guess the consensus is the ATI 4850 is better than the 5670, but how drastic is the difference? My heart was always leaning on the 2010 i3 3.2Ghz...but seeing how the 2009 i5 is only a tad more expensive... is it worthwhile to purchase an older system (although the main diff are memory speed, CPU, and Gfx card)? However, after seeing some benchmarks and being rational with what I need...I think I can get by w/ the cheapest iMac without a problem... The dilemma..... I'm seeking some advice before I buy... I missed out of a recent eBay promo so I'm trying to hang on until at least Black Friday.. Fielding advice and suggestions! Thanks for reading this post!!!
