The two models have different power consumption ratings as well. The 1GB ATI FireGL V8600 has a less than 225 watt rating while the 2GB V8650 has a greater than 255 watt rating.

"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
