    I'm about to move to Eastern Europe and don't expect an Apple Store to be anywhere within a thousand miles. My GF needs a computer too. So here's my problem.

    I give my GF my Rev A 17" PB (and she has sex with me - it's a good deal. She's staggering.)

    I buy a Rev c 17" (I like the big screen) with a 1.5, 5400 and 128 9700 video card. The question is do I see a real performance increase. My guess is yess but anyone done a comparison?

    If the difference isn't there would it be smarter to buy a Rev B and save the cash?

    You probably mean that she's stunning. I would never use "staggering" to describe a current girlfriend. :p

    I concur with mb. But for sex, you'll notice a big difference in process speeds. Honest.

    Girls.

    No - she demands cash. But this is LA and LA hot is not the same as midwest hot. Our women are Ferrari's. Unreliable and expensive but great to look at and desired by all.

    Anyway back to my benchmarking question...

    I don't think we can offer any more help until we see a picture of her. Seriously.

    Agreed. There may be scaling issues that might need to be worked out visually.

    Okay - pictures.

    There are pictures of her all over the damn internet. You would not believe me if I posted a link or mentioned her name so you'll just have to take it as read. To answer the obvious questions:

    1) No - she's not a porn star
    2) Yes - she's frequently naked in public
    3) No - whatever you're assuming. No.

    I need to start a new thread. How much faster will a 1.5 rev C be in real terms compared to a 1.0 rev A?

    well, first off - we can judge whether we want to believe you. Since none of us will probably ever meet anyway (that would be weird, no offense to anyone) you are safe no matter who you say she is.

    Anyway, for internet browsing - same speed. For some apps, opening large files might be a little faster. Depends on what you're using.

    no need to post a pic, just curious who she is...

    See the line behind you?

    See the line behind you? It's the one you crossed.

    You're offensive. Not funny.
