    Can you notice a difference between the 128 MB SDRAM and the 256? (Geforce 8600M GT) on the macbook pros. I don't play any games ...

    If you don't play games or to intense graphics work (3d rendering and the like), and I can't imagine that you'd ever notice enough of a difference to justify spending the extra money on the 256. I have a 128, and there's absolutely nothing in the day to day operation of the computer that makes me wish I spent the extra money on the 256. Everything is smooth as butter. I don't play games, and I don't do really intensive graphics work, but I do plenty of work in Photoshop, and I haven't noticed even a bit of slowdown.

    Take that for what it's worth.
