    I don't think we'll see Multi-Touch coming to the MacBook soon, because it is just one more reason to go for an Air or Pro for the time being.

    Eventually, yes they'll have it, but not yet.

    Can't comment about 512MB v 256MB but you'd have the usual expectations about double the VRAM.

    yep double the VRam make video editing faster, all the multimedia things will be faster with 512 VRam when comapred to 256 VRam, but want to see how much faster they are?

    will the 500USD difference between the begineer and medium model of MBP is worth?

    It's the same as what it used to be.

    Personally i've found my 2.6/256 far snappier than my 2.2/128 was, games included.

    Personally, I don't think the AU$700 extra is worth it.

    I have the previous model 2.4GHz/256MB/160GB (7200rpm), and it's plenty fast.

    I agree. The price difference doesn't justify the incrementals. Just my opinion. I'd go 2.4GHz/256MB.

    The price difference isn't worth it I don't think. I got a lower level one because the difference could be used on software, accesories, etc.

    I don't personally think the extra cost is justified on a purely performance basis, but if you have stacks of $ and can afford whatever you want without budgeting then sure... go for it
