but if this x1300 is actually capable of palying games 9from what i have seen it is) then you can max out the macbook for about a grand and it is better than the MBP on paper even thought it is missing some of the nifty little touches like the backlit keyboard.

I bought a black macbook on friday (I really needed it then so couldnt wait).

Im not great with tech specs, so could someone post the differences and what they mean in the real world between the old and the new? I see a slight processor bump, which is self explanatory. What was the max upgradable RAM for the old macbooks - I see now that its 4GB - was it 3 for the old ones?

Also, what does the different graphics processor mean compared to the old ones? What couldnt you do on the old ones that you can do on the new ones? I dont use any high level graphics programs or gaming - I do play poker via VMware.

Thanks for any help...

Oh wow, now that's quite a bump from mine though, especially the 4GB of RAM.

So how does the x3100 compare to the 950?

Not 100% sure how accurate the info is however.
