MacBook Pro 15": graphic memory

Hi there,

there’s a version of the macbook available that has 256MB and one that has 1GB, both are AMD Radeons.

For music production would you care too much about this aspect or is 256 MB enough?

Thanks for your opinions!

Make sure that the 1GB version really has 1GB of its own memory. Usually in laptops, graphics cards don’t have so much memory and high numbers like this lead me to think it’s memory shared from the RAM. In that case you’re better off with 256MB, if that’s the graphics cards own memory.

Just guessing though, have no experience with macbooks.

Hi Stro,

yeah, Am aware of this fact. Thanks for pointing out! The 1GB version is the more expensive one though, so I guess its actually real 1GB graphic RAM. Will double check…
