Games that will be like Startcraft II and Diablo III I am thinking 256 should be fine but I'd rather ask those who truly would be able to answer.

What do you guys think? Is 256 still great for laptop video cards?
Obviously more is always better when it comes to gaming. If gaming is absolutely top priority, it might be worth spending the extra money on a 512MB card. But in all honesty, laptops often don't make the best gaming machines - particularly Mac laptops where the selection of games is pretty limited (unless you're running Windows on it). But if you intend to just play the occasional game, you should be fine with the 256MB card.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
