    Found a benchmark Penryn (macbook 4,1) and Merom (macbook 3,1) ... are almost 200 points with only 2gb of ram versus Macbook 3,1 with 4gb of ram... (300 if you comparison to macbook1, with 2 giga)
    (I am angry because in the space of a month and a half could save almost "200€" ... I know that the technology is so but never imagined that upgrading them so soon ... ok so at that time I needed if no remains to be cool for certain things...)

    I'm thinking I should exchange my week-old MacBook for one of these Penryn puppies...

    I just got my BlackBook 2.4...

    250GB with Penryn Chip on Wednesday night! There were at least 5 other people exchanging their MB's without paying the re-stock fee, 'cause I was talking to them as I was waiting for my data transfer to complete. :cool:

    They have an awesome keyboard...

    and they run so much "cooler" and it doubled my hard drive in comparison to my MB 2.16 120GB purchased in August '07.

    Oh cool. Getting similar results to my 2.4 iMac. Should suit my needs fine then. :)

    I own both and I do notice a slight speedup in the Penryn version.
