Ok guys, I decided I can't/won't wait any longer for the MBP refeshes I'm actually quite excited now that I got that figured out. Anyway, now I'm facing a new dilemma; I know I want to go with a 15 inch MBP. The doubt now is which processor to take, the 2.4, 2.53, or 2.66 Ghz. From the one hand I heard the difference between performance of these configurations isn't exactly huge (while the price difference pretty much is). Yet, from the other hand, since the processor is the main component you CAN'T upgrade later on, it's suggested to go with the best, in order to make the purchase more future proof.. What would you guys suggest? Actually, money is not that much of an issue. But heat is (I would prefer a cooler running slightly less performing (and cheaper) MBP, over a fast, but hot and expensive one) I am currently considering going with the supposedly 'best' (the i7 with the 512 for the NVIDIA), but I am a bit concerned this configuration might not really be 'worth it', as the performance increase might be minimal, while cost and heat are higher. Especially with respect to heat issues, what would you guys suggest to do? Is the performance of the 512 NVIDIA significantly better than the performance of the NVIDIA's that come with the i5?
