I´m just about to order the 2.66-12 core MP but still wonder if i will step into the "software-trap" that was mentioned here so often. How much time will I win if I prefer the 12-core 2.66 to the 6-core? Will the 12 core already be "old" till Final cut and logic update there software to 12-core usage? Or is the 6-core just about to be "standard" in one or two years? Maybe the investment of the 1.300 Euro for the 12-core is a waste... P.S. Sorry that this subject was discussed quite often in other threads, but maybe you can help me.
