    With the new update out and everyone either excited or mostly disappointed, I'm a bit indecisive on which 13" MBP to get. It doesn't look like much of a speed difference which confuses me. 2.4 or 2.66, which one to get?:confused:

    As always with those decision threads:

    WHAT ARE YOUR NEEDS?

    Are 260 MHz more worth the price difference to you?

    The 2.4 for sure, no way is the 2.66 worth the extra.

    I'm getting the 2.4, saving US$ 300 for something else! :D If I would have the money I would jump to Arrandale instead.

    There's no need for me to get an Arrandale since I have a Bloomfield laptop. I bought it as a desktop replacement but I now know I need a much better portable computer with a bit of punch.

    as a relatively light user (word processing, surfing the net, some games like l4d2, cod4), would the difference between the 2.4ghz and 2.66ghz processor be noticeable at all?

    Yeah I think I'm sold on the 2.4. Plus it's cheap to get it with a 500GB hdd, a mini dvi adapter, and an applecare warranty for $1446 with student discount.:D
