Yes, I know there are already loads of these, but I have quite a few questions I couldn't find answers to. Firstly, I should begin by mentioning I live in the Middle East... the Middle East is completley dominated by PCs, with Macs having a very small presence, which meant that I didn't consider Mac properly until I saw and read about it online... if I get a Mac, it will be over the summer when I will be going to the States for a visit. Now, my questions: -Firstly, the 2.16GHz MBP is quite expensive... instead, I am considering getting the 2.0GHz MBP with an extra 512MB RAM. Now, my main concern is gaming - I am a big PC gamer, and while OS X will be my primary OS, I will be using Windows for gaming - I don't need things to be blasting at full detail with max. resolution, I just need good fps and for games to look good. Is the difference between 256MB VRAM and 128MB VRAM that big? Also, how good is the ATi X1600? -Secondly, is it possible to get the RAM on a MBP upgraded in an Apple store/at a retailer, or is this only possible online? -Thirdly, should I buy a MBP in July, because from what i've read on this forum there are new updated ones coming out in August... but, I don't know if I can wait until then as I will be leaving the States at the end of July/beginning of August. If I do get a MBP before the new Intel Core Duos are released, will I be missing out on much? Will there be any other new significant differences? -Finally, can someone give me general feedback on how the MacBook Pros perform? I use my computer for everything - Games, music, some Photoshop, internet browsing. How good is MBP as an all-around machine? Thanks in advance!
