    personally I would shoot for the Core Duo simply for the DVDRW

    That's a good question...

    If the Core Duo had none of the problems (like excessive heat, whining) I'd probably go with it. It's faster, and the speed bump from 64 Bit is minimal. Plus, a DVD burner sounds awesome.

    I'd go for the C2D because it's less buggy, then add a FireWire DVD writer.

    I would go for the 1.83 and just buy a cheap external DVD burner off of newegg.com. The core 2 duo to my understanding is the Rev B. of the macbooks.

    Tough choice but according to a benchmark, the 1.83 C2D performed the same as the 2.0 CD, maybe slighter better? I'd go with the C2D.
