Mail doesn't play nicely with Gmail - it's kinda well known and over-documented. Gmail doesn't exactly use standard IMAP settings, and Mail isn't exactly flexible. Combine them, and you have what's...

Buy the best you can afford, although I would take a larger SSD over a 300mhz speed increase personally.
