    Yea the 2.66 is not worth the money. I would use that to buy a new hardd drive and use the apple supplied one as a back up

    I got mine yesterday, 13" MBP 2.4GHz 4GB RAM 25GB HD. The student discount is instant once you show your school ID/other info if you don't have ID. I got the MBP for $1,099 and the apple for $183, the total was $1,282 with out tax.

    I doubt the faster processor is going to be the determining factor in whether the the application will run.

    The 2.4 GHz CPU is a fast processor, and a much better deal.
    Spend your $300 on a SSD. It will make the bigger performance difference.

    There's only a 266Mhz difference which isn't worth the +$$$ in my opinion. It'll be faster, yes ... but it won't be worth it as its only a few seconds of difference in encoding, and no noticeable difference doing day to day things.

    the 2.66 is worth every penny,

    i would get it for the little extra money, you can always buy and upgrad hdd/ram/ssd later, cpu cannot be upgraded later though, always remember that.

    i had the 2.4 and found it did not perform as good running my virtual machines or games as the 2.66 did.

    Yes I'm gonna save my $300. I already got 320gb HD, but I use on my windows laptop. I know can transfer files from HD to MBP, but not the other way. And suggestion on that?

    Does anyone knows how much student discount we get on AppleCare in Canada?

    I don't know abou the AppleCare discount, but I paid 120$ than the street price on my 2,53 MBP last year. Now that the price is lower, it must be only 100$ rebate.

    I live in Canada, by the way.

    2.66GHz is not worth it. Don't waste your money on it. Get the 2.4.

    You may as well just continue to save/work/hustle etc. for the 15" if you gonna get the 2.66.

    No I didn't because when you receive the iPod, you pay for it upfront and get the rebate back. I didn't really need it anyway since I had an iPod.

    If you get your computer from the Apple online store, the rebate is hassle free. Literally all you have to do is fill out your address information and give them your web order. No cutting out UPCs or mailing in ANYTHING. It is not really a mail-in-rebate at all - although you still get your check in the mail :p

    25-30% of the cost of the computer for a 10% increase in clock speed.

    Yeah sounds pretty ridiculous when you put it that way. Especially since 10% increase clock speed does NOT mean 10% faster computer.
