    Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could give me a rundown of what changed/updated between the 15" MBP 2.2 Ghz and the 15" MBP 2.4 Ghz model.

    You mean the old $2499 2.4GHz model, or the new $1999 2.4GHz model?

    They both have led screen just the 2.2ghz model has the 128mb vram of the nvidia 8600m gt card and it is a merom.

    The newer 2.4ghz mbp uses a penryn and has 256mb vram with 3mb of cache as to the 4mb of cache for the older 2.4ghz mbp with merom 07 model.

    FSB and standard RAM are the same; Less problems is debatable.

    The difference is 200MHz and 1MB L2 Cache; Also the older one was standard HDD @ 120GB; new one @ 200GB. As mentioned VRAM has been doubled; multitouch has been added; CPU die strink results in lower power consumption which should give longer battery life (*suppose to, but might not always result in that)
