    Hello,
    The new MBP are finally released! I have asked similar questions before, but given the new spec, I'd like to ask again:)

    I'm only considering 15' MBP due to its better screen size over 13'. My main activities will be
    - web surfing
    - emailing
    - chatting (e.g. Skype)
    - listening to music, watch DVDs
    - writing documents as word, excel etc
    - playing some games
    - (some other fun stuff I may have forgot to mention)

    Given the list above, do you think the entry leven 15' is enough for me? i.e. 15-inch: 2.53GHz

    The only concern I have with it is that it doesn't have any dedicated graphic memory. It shouldn't give me any problem if I don't play any game (right?), but if I suddenly decide to play a game (such as Age of Empire), would it cause me any trouble?

    Thanks!

    It'll be enough, unless you want to play newest games at highest settings, then it's not enough :D

    Great, thanks a lot! :D
    Do you think this is the only update Apple will make to MBP this year? I mean the conference isn't over yet, any chance they'll make another announcement later this week, or, will they have any other update any time soon? Thanks

    There won't be more updates for several months.

    If you have the cash get the 15 if not settle for the 13.
