    Any thoughts on the real world difference between a 1.86 and a 2.13?

    I won't be doing video rendering.

    Mostly iPhoto editing on the road (nothing heavy), iWeb stuff for my site, email, Safari, iTunes, Messenger, some Facetime, and plenty of VMWare Fusion for backgammon.

    Any difference? I upgraded the RAM and got the big drive. I may not need that either, and could go down to the 1.86/4/128

    The 1.86GHz should be quite sufficient for your planned use. I ordered the 2.13, since I was getting the other upgrades (256GB storage, 4GB RAM), and I figured I might as well go the Full Monty. ;)

    If it was only $100 it would be a no brainer, but the forced storage upgrade makes it a rip off unless you really need it.
