Fellas, I need your valued opinions. I've been using my HP DV9207 since 07. Bought it at a price which I thought was a steal - $800 only to find out it would have numerous issues down the road. It was a mistake i've lived with till now, hopefully. I'm looking to purchase a MBP but am wondering if the base 15 inch will run HD video just fine. The HP i'm trying to replace would play some HD fine with no stutter, but the 1080p's would stutter and over heat the laptop. Granted it's now four years later so I'm thinking even the base MBP will run 1080p mkv with no issues. Maybe some heat but no stutter? Am I right to assume this? If I am, then what would be the advantage of getting the 1 GB GDDR5 on the 6750M vs the 256mb. The majority of HD content I play is Soccer matches so it'll be fast moving video. Any help would be appreciated as I have disassembled my DV9207 and am waiting on upgrade parts. Thinking maybe I should just trash this. Thanks guys.
