    Anyone else having a hard time deciding between the new 2.26 and the old 2.4?

    The new 2.26 is ~ $50 more after taxes and the edu discount, but you get a free iTouch (which I’d sell)

    However, the 2.4 is faster and has a bigger HD. I don’t need FW or SD really.

    Decisions, decisions….

    Yea the battery has me leaning towards the 2.26

    Plus I think the "Pro" at the end will help with the resale value if I want to sell it in 2 years or so

    Better screens, larger battery, FW, etc etc. Yeah the 2.4 unibody from late 2008 just got smoked.

    For me, the $50 is worth buying the newer model. Go for it!
